KORIDA accompanies its protagonists on their journey through the world of Bosnian bullfights, the Koridas, a subject rarely caught on film. In a Korida bullfight, bulls compete against bulls in an arena, yet unlike the Spanish Corrida de Toros no blood is shed.
The film gives a unique insight into a society that tries to come to terms with its past war experiences in an unusual way. Is it true that Koridas have brought more peace to the Bosnian people than the European Union?
