No Man's Land is a film directed by Danis Tanovic (debut). Set during the 1993 Bosnian Conflict, this is the story of two soliders, a Bosnian, Ciki (Djuric), and a Serb, Nino (Bitorajac), who find themselves trapped in "No Man's Land", a trench between both sides, next to an injured Bosnian lying on a mine that could kill them all. Soon, an U.N. sergeant (Siatidis), trying to help, attracts the attention of the international press. This film won a Best Foreign Picture Golden Globe and Oscar.
