Scream for me Sarajevo | September 23 | KINO Rotterdam
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.
SynopsisThe 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.
