FINDING BOSNIA is funded! BIG NEWS! A very special thank-you to our community and Kickstarter donors for rallying behind LM and helping us on our journey.
Finding Bosnia is slowly taking shape! Over the past couple months since my return to Portland, I have been busy translating and transcribing footage so that LLAMAMAMA can continue creating the story of Finding Bosnia. Since my return I spoke at an event aimed at the cultural shutdown of Bosnia about everything I learned from daily life and from the stories of people living in Sarajevo. The event was a great success and a wonderful reminder of how this project has the power to bring people together regardless of whether they are Bosnian or American. After months of obsessing over details and hiccups in Finding Bosnia, this event really brought me back what is driving me to make this film which is to share my personal story in hopes that it will be something you can identify with, be inspired by, learn from or all of the above.
Ciao for now! Stay tuned for more,
