3. Screening of the film “Reminiscence”, author Radoslav Ćebić (19:00 -21: 00)

The film most directly presents our users, victims of torture, who have experienced various types of torture in war and peace, and reminds us of many forgotten traumas, events, injustices, violations of the law and violations of human rights.
