A story about musicians who risked their lives to perform for people who risked their lives to live them. A triple winner at the Sarajevo Film Festival.

Synopsis

The first time Iron Maiden’s frontman Bruce Dickinson was in Sarajevo, the city was cut off from the world, its citizens brutally terrorized by sharp shooters, bombing and starvation. Right in the middle of a raging war, Bruce and his then solo band drove through the frontlines and gave a legendary concert in the Bosnian Culture Centre on December 14, 1994. After 963 days, or 23.566 hours, or simply 1.415.520 minutes of the siege of Bosnian capital, the British singer entered the stage and shouted ‘Scream for me Sarajevo’. What this gig meant to the audience and the band itself is told in this award winning film; one of the most valuable documentaries about the Sarajevo siege ever made.

Verhaal

De eerste keer dat Iron Maiden’s frontman Bruce Dickinson in Sarajevo was, was de stad geïsoleerd van de wereld; burgers werden geterroriseerd door scherpschutters, bombardementen en hongersnood. Tijdens een woedende oorlog reed Bruce – met zijn toen soloband – door de frontlinies heen en gaf op 14 december 1994 een legendarisch concert in het Bosnisch Cultureel Centrum. 963 dagen, 23.566 uur of 1.415.520 minuten na de belegering van de hoofdstad van Bosnië kwam de Britse zanger het podium op en schreeuwde: ‘Scream for me Sarajevo’. Wat dit optreden betekende voor het publiek en de band zelf wordt verteld in deze bekroonde film; een van de meest waardevolle documentaires over de belegering van Sarajevo.
