Film A STRANGER Opened Competition Programme – Feature Film

A STRANGER film crew walked down the Red Carpet of the 19th Sarajevo Film Festival. This is the first feature film by Bobo Jelčić, with prominent actors Bogdan Diklić and Nada Đurevska in leading roles.

The Red Carpet appearance was followed by the film screening in the National Theatre Cinema, marking the official start of this year’s Competition programme – feature film.

A STRANGER is a convincing story of daily life in a troubled society in a world where paranoia, comedy and drama exist simultaneously. It is an astute psychological portrait of a man forced to cross the invisible line separating two communities. It is primarily a story of a man who, at the moment when his country disintegrated, lost everything that made him what he was.
