Scream For Me Sarajevo Documents Music Amidst Mayhem
The film Scream For Me Sarajevo is the amazing and astonishing story of the most unlikely of rock concerts, performed by Iron Maiden frontman Bruce Dickinson in 1994, in the midst of the Siege of Sarajevo. Mortars and grenades rained down on the city, killing indiscriminately every day. Amidst the madness, would it be possible to persuade a global rock star to come and play a show for local fans? This is a film about extraordinary people defying the horrors of war, and the musicians who risked their lives to entertain them. Featuring actual footage from the historic gig, the film also features interviews with those who made it to the show and those who made the show happen -- determined to experience the joys of life despite the atrocities going on around them. Interviews with the band, crew, and security bring home the reality of a situation that was not only dangerous, but also barbaric. Says Dickinson, "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 matter. It changed the way I viewed life, death, and other human beings." See this fascinating documentary at Arlington's Regent Theatre.
