Sceam For Me Sarajevo 5/5/18
During the longest siege a capital city has faced in the history of modern warfare, and amid the mortars and grenades, a Heavy Metal band agreed to play a concert… 'Scream for Me Sarajevo', due to be released on CD/DVD on Friday 29th June, is the astonishing story of the most unlikely of Rock concerts, performed by Bruce Dickinson and his band Skunkworks in 1994. Risking their lives, they were smuggled into the besieged city to play a concert for its citizens amidst the chaos of war. The film is far from a straight concert movie and provides an insight into a wider story of the people of Sarajevo taking drastic measures to endure the privations of war and pushing the boundaries to survive. It reflects a thriving underground arts community who were living their lives in the shadow of war and making music in the face of devastating loss, and the huge impact the concert had on the people of Sarajevo at a time when they thought they had been forgotten by the rest of the world.
