Film Synopsis:

I Remember explores the connection between location and memory as a woman makes repeated visits to her abandoned family home. Spending time in this particular space and performing household chores serves as a reminder of history and the loss of childhood innocence that came with the onset of the Bosnian War. The film, while anchored in the present, explores memories of the past and expectations for the future, and the ways in which spaces can trigger memories for which they have no direct association. I Remember is the second directorial effort from Elma Tataragic, who has written and produced multiple films.
