Shooting of Martin Turk's Feature Film "A Good Day's Work" Begins in Sarajevo
Last weekend, shooting of the film A GOOD DAY'S WORK by the Slovenian director Martin Turk started in Sarajevo. The film is being produced by the Obala Art Centre as part of the Sarajevo City of Film for Global Screen project.
During the last year's Sarajevo Film Festival, the Festival and the Turkish Radio and Television (TRT) started a production scheme for a feature film called the Sarajevo City of Film for Global Screen. The film that will be produced within the SCF GS was announced at the 23rd Sarajevo Film Festival.
A GOOD DAY'S WORK is a character-driven social drama that tells the story of a Armin, an ordinary man struggling to find his place in life. His story reflects how the devaluation of human integrity is one of the most painful consequences of any crisis.
The story takes place in Sarajevo, where the shooting will last for twenty days. Turk’s film should be completed in May 2018, and screened for the Sarajevo audience at the 24th Sarajevo Film Festival.
