21St-century Blues

Pikic, who is Bosnian Orthodox, could immediately relate to her character, a devout Muslim named Rahima. Says Pikic: “Rahima’s story is a mirror image of my entire generation. My generation, in our early 20s, should have doors and opportunities open to us … instead, our society is lost in translation. We wanted to create a film of hope and change.”

Background

Pikic was born and raised in Trebinje, in the south of Bosnia and Herzegovina. Her cousin, an actress, encouraged her interest in thesping and cinema, as did her father, who has run a DVD club for 20 years. At 19, she was cast in the fi lm “The Enemy,” a war drama directed by Dejan Zecevic. »
