In Hernaiz Pidal’s The Chaotic Life of Nada Kadić, Nada is a dedicated single mother, disaffected with her tumultuous domestic life yet unable to piece together a plan to change it. After Nada finds out her daughter is on the autistic spectrum, together they embark on a journey through the Balkans in search of peace with the past, and acceptance of new realities. On their long drive through the foggy, rainy countryside, and away from the chaos of home, perhaps they can form new bonds, and learn new ways to communicate with one another. The BHFF invites you to join us for this special presentation and Q&A with Hernaiz Pidal on Thursday, April 11, at 8:45pm!
