    • Synopsis
    • The documentary feature KORIDA follows three protagonists on their touching journey through the fascinating world of Bosnian bullfights, the Koridas. It is a world full of myths and heroic tales which has hardly been captured on film up to now. In an exciting, dramatic and entertaining manner KORIDA offers a new perspective on a universe that we hardly know and yet extends all the way to our front doors. It tells us of still vital archaic remnants within modern societies, of the relationship between human and nature and of the unifying power of bullfights, whose dramatic and ethnic force is capable of momentarily healing the deep wounds and thus alleviating the pain that history inflicted on the people.
      They say that Koridas gave the Bosnian people more peace than the European Union. Is that true? And if so why?
