The documentary film “Scream for Me Sarajevo” will be released beginning May 10 in select theaters across the US and Canada, it was announced on Wednesday. “Scream for Me Sarajevo” is the “astonishing true story of one of the most unlikely rock concerts ever staged, in a city under siege with mortars and grenades raining down on civilians, killing indiscriminately.” The 1994 concert features global rock star Bruce Dickinson and his band Skunkworks who performed in the midst of the siege of Sarajevo. Featuring footage from the historic gig, the film also features concertgoers who made it to the show despite the atrocities going on around them in the capital city of Bosnia and Herzegovina. Interviews with the band, crew and security bring home the grim reality of the dangerous and often barbaric conditions surrounding the event. In addition to the feature film, a specially recorded interview with Iron Maiden frontman Bruce Dickinson will be included as exclusive theatrical-only content in participating theaters.
