    I am successful if I manage to make a film that I want and if it works emotionally for the audience, and if it stays with them after the screening and means something for them.

Her feature debut GRBAVICA was awarded the 2006 Berlinale Golden Bear, the American Film Institute Grand Jury Prize, and Grand Prix Odyssey of the European Council and was sold to 40 territories with great success.
