THE CHAOTIC LIFE OF NADA KADIĆ

the_chaotic_life_of_nada_kadic_-_teaser_-_tiff_2019

Single mom Nada is struggling to jog her daytime office job, caring for her little girl Hava and squeezing in some time for herself. On top of all, Hava is diagnosed within the autism spectrum and neither money nor time is sufficient to cope with this challenge. No wonder Nada needs a break. So she and her daughter embark on a road trip through Bosnia and Montenegro, back to her parents' village. Will she reconcile with her situation on this e journey? 

Director Hernaiz Pidal’s project is to follow female characters who live on “the edge”, and to make films about ordinary people living in and rebelling against today’s society. Her directing style is naturalistic, and the language of the film, notably also the camera placement and movement, is fully consistent to the film’s story: An intense, hectic and deeply touching mom-daughter relationship. And, yes, the main characters are mother and daughter also in real life.
