Sarajevo Songs of Woe
Feature | DCP | 1.85 : 1 | Digital | Color + B&W | 140min | Bosnia Herzegovina, Germany | 2016


A filmic triptych comprising the two tales and the documentary middle part. They flow into each other and thus build a universal mosaic of fragmented life situated in the city of Sarajevo. The camera follows different protagonists and interweaves them in a cinematic round dance of hope and despair, love and death, and their quest for a dignified life, which is fragilely stretched between the desire for the warmth of love and the coldness of our civilization’s reality.
