The film addresses the Siege of Sarajevo twenty years later through a walk taken by 10 different characters. As the camera goes around on the streets of Sarajevo, we get to witness the signs of the war. When Serbians were busy preparing for the war they were planning to start, Bosnians were having pro-peace protests on the streets. As the assaults intensified, Presidency of Bosnia-Herzegovina declared war in June 20, 1992. Thousands of people died during the subsequent war which lasted three and a half years. The war made headlines around the globe due to the atrocities committed against the people of Bosnia. However, the epic victory gained by handmade guns against the fourth largest army in Europe was ignored. Sarajevo March is the story of victory, not atrocity.
This film was a Meetings on the Bridge participant.
