'I CHOOSE LIFE ' and the Beginning of a Profound Friendship

'I CHOOSE LIFE ' and the Beginning of a Profound Friendship
"In February 2022, I was skiing and ski mountaineering  in the mountains around Sarajevo with two filmmakers from Bosnia-Herzegovina, Zoran Kubura and Bojan Hadžiabdić. And I was deeply impressed and enamored. Enamored with their way of seeing things, their passion for their profession as filmmakers, their humility, and their exceptional cinematic abilities to convey complex subjects with precision. They aren't just empty talkers; they are thinkers and doers working towards a better world. Their focus as directors and filmmakers remains on meaningful projects and their cinematic execution.

Since then, I have been fortunate enough to call them my friends. After the documentary I CHOOSE LIFE, which portrayed my role as the President and Founder of OAC (Outdoor Against Cancer), we collaborated on another project together:

CHOOSE the HEALTHy way - a short film about the healthy lifestyle of young cancer survivors. From over 780 entries submitted, the WHO selected a shortlist of 90 films. OACCUs’ entry “CHOOSE the HEALTHy way” was officially selected as one of the 15 films within the category “Special Prize: Very Short Film

Concept, idea and production of the short film: Petra Thaller, founder and president of Outdoor Against Cancer and cancer survivor.
Directing, camera and editing: Bojan Hadžiabdić and Zoran Kubura from Bosnia and Herzegovina.

Our next joint project involves creating videos for the personalized training plan of the Outdoor Against Cancer Connects Us App, or simply OACCUs App.
Until today, it has been an incredible journey of creativity, friendship, and shared aspirations, and I am deeply grateful for the opportunity to collaborate with such talented and inspiring filmmakers." - Petra Thaller
