Scream for me, Sarajevo!
It is a story of hope in a time of war. The Gig in Sarajevo – one of the most extra ordinary rock concerts in history took place in 1994, in an extremely dangerous situation.
Those involved were all determined to keep living their lives, despite the war and everything going on around them.
The film from the concert – performed by Bruce Dickinson and the band Skunkworks – has won several awards, including the Human Rights Award. “Scream for me, Sarajevo!” will be screened in select UK cinemas in April, and hits US and Canada in May.
“It changed the way I viewed life” – Bruce Dickinson
“We weren`t protected, there was no plan and the bullets were real, but f… it, we went anyway. 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 really matter.”
It changed the way I viewed life, death and other human beings.
– Bruce Dickinson. “What Does This Button Do – an Autobiography.”
Human Rights Award Jury: “It is more relevant than ever before.”
“This touching film shows us with profound humanity that art plays a major role in creating hope for a better society and in defending basic human rights values. It is a singular story with an universal message and it`s more relevant than ever before.” (Awarding Speech, Human Rights Award)
