“The Bosnian Identity” is the winning film of the documentary section at BIF&ST-Bari International Film Festival, 2013! The judges allocated the Vittorio de Seta prize for the director of Best Documentary film to Matteo Bastianelli for the following reasons: “For having told of the sense of loss and anger with the strong desire to give back new hope to the Bosnian people; taking an accurate look, never pathetic, forceful but at the same time discreet, while showing impeccable formal care and a profound respect for the characters and places portrayed”.
