Sarajevo Roses: A cinematic essay. 7 p.m. at West Hills Unitarian Universalist Fellowship, 8470 SW Oleson Rd., Portland. See trailer at www.sarajevoroses.com. The 2016 (NR) 98 minute documentary told through 5 citizens who survived death and unimaginable horror during the four-year siege in the Bosnian capital of Sarajevo. What happens when a modern society implodes? Imagine waking up to find society collapsed: stores shuttered, electricity and water shut off, no food or medicine, neighbors become enemies and fighting in the streets. That's what happened in the city of Sarajevo, only eight years after hosting the 1984 Winter Olympic games. Cost: $10 donation or pay as you can.
