Aki Kaurismaki’s The Other Side of Hope will open the 23rd Sarajevo Film Festival on August 11.
Finnish director Aki Kaurismaki’s film “Le Havre,” which won a critics’ award at Cannes, opened the 17th Sarajevo Film Festival.
“The Other Side of Hope”, for which Kaurismäki won the Silver Bear for the best director at this year’s Berlinale, is a thematic follow-up of sorts to the 2011 film “Le Havre”.
The film premiere will start at 20:30 h at the National Theatre and a half-hour later also at the Open Air Cinema Raiffeisen.
After the screening, the audience will be greeted by actors Sherwan Haji and Simon Al-Bazoon.
