ENFF On Tour: Scream for me Sarajevo

Saturday 28 October | 16:15 hours | Rialto | Ceintuurbaan 338, 1072 GN Amsterdam

The brand new title in our 2017 selection is the great music documentary Scream for me Sarajevo by Tarik Hodzic. 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. The screening will be accompanied by a Q&A session with Trevor Gibson, the former UN officer who was in charge of Bruce Dickinson’s security in Sarajevo in 1994. Trevor has since gone on to become a Grammy award winning record producer. Come and join this special event in Rialto, Amsterdam.


The 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.
