1994, Sarajevo under siege. The population lives in constant fear of snipers and grenades, the city has no electrical power, water, or heating. In these crazy circumstances, can you imagine that a globally renowned rockstar would come and play a gig for the local fans?

Scream for Me Sarajevo is the story about a cold December night in 1994 when Bruce Dickinson, the legendary singer of Iron Maiden, appeared in front of the amazed audience of the Sarajevo Arts Centre. For the next few hours, the war was gone and the people could almost believe again that a normal life was possible. Dickinson shouted “Scream for me, Sarajevo!” into the microphone and together with him they screamed, all of those who put their life on the line that night to be part of this historic concert. The film by Tarik Hodžić is a story about bravery, hope and the unlimited power of art.

“We weren't protected, there was no plan and the bullets were real, but fuck it, we went anyway,” Bruce Dickinson wrote in his autobiography What Does This Button Do? in 2017. “The gig was immense, intense and probably the biggest show in the world at that moment for the audience and for us. That the world didn't really know didn't matter. It changed the way I viewed life, death and other human beings.”

The documentary, in which Dickinson, the organisers and the fans recall the gig won the Special Jury Prize and the Audience Award at the Sarajevo Film Festival. Dickinson was made an honorary citizen by the city of Sarajevo at the beginning of April this year.

“/…/ fondly made documentary. /…/ The band’s reminiscences are deeply felt as well as comical. But the doc belongs to the Bosnian metalheads at the gig, now in their 30s and 40s.”
- Cath Clarke, The Guardian

Scream for Me Sarajevo touched on something far beyond the confines of a mere music documentary.”
- Nick Ruskell, Kerrang!

Ever since sedentism, mankind has been creating closed and strictly regulated rooms. They facilitate the satisfaction of human drives and therefore provide a basis for our culture. Rooms will let you immerse into five intimate room realities. Having an anthropological view on the presented world, the narration follows the rooms’ archaic processes and watches the rooms’ dramatized physical development.

It is 1961. A young man in a black beret is travelling west, leaving the Soviet Union for the first time. From Rudolf Nureyev’s poverty-stricken childhood and his blossoming as a student dancer in Leningrad, to his arrival in Paris in the early 1960s and a nail-biting stand-off at the Le Bourget airport, The White Crow is the true story of an incredible journey by an artist who transformed the world of ballet forever.
