Portland is home to a strong Bosnian community, and many are former refugees who made a home here after the Balkan War in the 1990s. Pour the Water as I Leave is an animated, narrative/documentary hybrid feature film by Portland-based, Bosnian-born filmmaker Daniela Repas. It tells a story about what happened to Bosnians 25 years ago and how it relates to refugees worldwide today.
