An Episode In The Life Of An Iron Picker DVD
Winner of 2 Silver Bears at the Berlin Film Festival, the film reconstructs (using the actual people involved) a real incident that became a national scandal - Nazif and his wife Senada are from Bosnia's Roma community, living with their two young daughters in a remote village. Nazif makes just enough to keep them going, by salvaging metal from old cars. But when Senada has a miscarriage and requires surgery, she does not have the card for free treatment. Though the sum being asked is not huge, it's far beyond Nazif's means. Each day that Senada continues without being operated on risks death from septicaemia. With time running out, Nazif must desperately try to raise the money from more and more scrap whilst pleading for help from state institutions that try to ignore him. It's both an expose of the plight of the poor in the region, and a depiction of one Roma family's huge courage and will to survive.
