The Bridge of Bosnian Blues

Rating:No Rating
Genre:Documentary
Release Date:January 1, 2004
Running time:60 minutes
Director:Mira Erdevicki

Description: At the height of Bosnian ethnic strife, a 500 year-old bridge was destroyed in a symbolic act of hatred. The incident compelled the best musicians from the region -- representing all ethnicities -- to get together and sing the blues. As war raged around them, their music dared to transcend the communal strife devastating their society. A decade later, the region's remaining divisions compelled these musicians of courage to reunite, although widely scattered throughout the continent by that time. Once again, their Bosnian blues reminded its listeners of the deeper identity that -- despite recent history -- still unites the political entities of ex-Yugoslavia.
