Film Review: Scream For Me Sarajevo (Iron Maiden Documentary)

CLIENT: DEMAND.FILM
OUTLET: OVERDRIVE

 There are few experiences that will instil more pride in the Metal community than watching  Tarik Hodžić  ’s  awe-inspiring documentary, ‘Scream for me Sarajevo.’ The film focuses on a series of events in 1994, culminating in  Iron Maiden  frontman  Bruce Dickinson  bringing his solo act to the war-torn city of Sarajevo in Bosnia and Herzegovina, for a single live show. This event occurred in the middle of the Bosnian War of Independence between 1992 and 1996, which resulted in large-scale destruction and loss of life across the city. It’s not hyperbole to say that Dickinson and his bandmates,  Chris Dale  and  Alex Elena , risked their lives in order to bring one night of unity and hope to the besieged people.
