As If I Am Not There relates one woman’s experience of the horrors that took place at the beginning of the Bosnian War, based on the book by Slavenka Drakulic. Disturbing and powerful, the film is an important testament to the survivors of the atrocities in the former Yugoslavia.

A harshly realistic film about the terrors a group of women, with Samira (Natasha Petrovic) as our guide, endures during the Bosnian war. A tough watch, but powerful and necessary and not skimping on complexities either. One of those great films I only want to see once.
An astounding and moving performance by Natasha Petrovic anchors this fine film looking at the horrors perpetrated on women during the Bosnian war. Director Wilson based the film on real stories recorded during the Hague tribunal following the war and the authenticity and emotional truth stand out. Also of note is the turn by Fedja Stukan as the captain who feels he is also doing what it takes to survive. Harrowing.
Addresses the use of rape in times of war with sensitivity. This is a film about one girl's struggle to survive brutal and dehumanizing conditions while held in a camp during the Bosnian war in the 1990s. Juanita Wilson is a director to watch. It's unfortunate she hasn't released a feature film since this one. I look forward to the films she will, hopefully, make in the future.
A stunning and stark drama, vividly and sensitively carved out by director Wilson. With a jaw-dropping performance by Natasa Petrovic whose every twitch and glance becomes the emotional narrative. A must-see.... even for the squeamish !
Mujeres que libran la guerra en el territorio del propio cuerpo. Magnífica dirección, no se necesita ver la sangre y el horror de las ejecuciones y los bombardeos, el terror está en el sobresalto cada vez que se abre la puerta. Solo una mujer podría entender esos gestos, esos silencios y trasladarlos a la pantalla con la precisión de una bala, apuntando en el centro del patriarcado que toma a las mujeres como botín.
Only for those with a strong stomach, this Balkan gruellingly tough drama based on a 1999 novel by the Croatian writer Slavenka Drakulic, gives an unblinking look at sexual violence and degradation which albeit being exceptionally uneasy to watch, it is a film that really should be seen.
