SARAJEVO: The documentary Under the Cover by Nejra Latić Hulusić and Sabrina Begović Ćorić investigates the attitude towards headscarves in Bosnia and Herzegovina.

While headscarfs are now perceived as a threatening flag of so-called Islamic terrorists, in Bosnia and Herzegovina, a post-war and post-communist society, young generations of Muslim women increasingly are deciding to wear headscarfs as a free expression of their faith and a rebellion against the capitalistic vision of the liberated woman.

Nejra Latić Hulusić and Sabrina Begović Ćorić wrote the script. The film will have a 90 minute version for theatrical release and a 58 minute version for TV.

HAVA Sarajevo is producing. The budget is 35,000 EUR of which 15,000 EUR is secured, Sabrina Begović Ćorić told FNE. The project received support from Film Foundation Sarajevo. Development was supported by Robert Bosch Stiftung coproduction workshops, Balkan Documentary Centre “BDC Discoveries 2011” and the REFINERI / Ex-Oriente workshops 2015.

The premiere is expected in 2016.
