Bosnian Broadway

An engaging documentary on the hopes and dreams of young people in the Balkans. An American theatre director is auditioning actors and singers for the first Broadway show in the ex-YU region. Who will be selected?


Sixteen young actors have been selected to participate in a Broadway musical that established American artists are putting on in Bosnia and Herzegovina. Many of the actors dream of a career beyond this region and they begin rehearsing with great enthusiasm and high expectations. However, as the premiere approaches, the mood begins to change. What will happen once the project is over? Will they return to their “regular” lives?
