FOCUS GRANDMA is a black comedy about a family that is falling apart next to the death-bed of their matriarch, in the hills above Sarajevo, unsuspecting of dangers that lie ahead of them as the city is living through its last days of peace.
Producing the film, as part of their joint Sarajevo City of Film for Global Screen (SCF GS) initiative, are Sarajevo-based Obala Art Centar and Turkey’s national public broadcaster TRT. The SCF GS is a production fund that supports films by directors from Eastern Europe who previously showcased their work and were awarded at the Sarajevo Film Festival.
