Jesse Eisenberg at the 28th Sarajevo Film Festival
American Academy Award-nominated actor, director, playwright and author Jesse Eisenberg walked the Red Carpet in front of the Sarajevo National Theater.
Tonight - on August 15th at 8.30 p.m., Sarajevo Film Festival will honour Eisenberg with the Heart of Sarajevo Award, ahead of a Special Screening of WHEN YOU FINISH SAVING THE WORLD – Eisenberg’s directorial feature debut - at the Coca-Cola Open Air Cinema.
Eisenberg’s directorial debut and an A24 title, WHEN YOU FINISH SAVING THE WORLD premiered at the 2022 Sundance Film Festival to glowing reviews and screened as a part of Critics Week at the 2022 Cannes Film Festival. The film follows Evelyn (Julianne Moore) a woman devoted to helping people fallen on hard times, but who struggles to connect with her son Ziggy (Finn Wolfhard), an aspiring internet star oblivious to the problems of the world. This emotional comedy- based on the Audible Original of the same name, also written by Eisenberg- reveals a funny and sharply perceptive portrait of a mother and son who may seem at odds but who are more alike than either would care to admit.
