We are glad to announce that within the framework of the Open Air Program of the 29th Sarajevo Film Festival there will be a world premiere of touching tragicomedy BOSNIAN POT by Pavo Marinković.
Faruk Šego, a Bosnian writer living in Austria, is suddenly left without a residence permit due to stricter emigration rules and his own negligence. In order to not be deported, Faruk must prove to the authorities, that he's made a cultural contribution to Austrian society. His last chance is an off-theatre group that can stage a play he once wrote as a young man. The ensuing adventure brought on by Faruk's reluctant return to the theatre could transform his life and force him to realize what is truly important.
