The 23rd Sarajevo film festival

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.
