Sarajevo City of Film 2009

Director’s note

My intention is to show a story as near as possible to the real life of gay people in region. Taking as granted that being gay in the region is not as easy as it is in Western Europe, I chose to show two points of view: one of a local and one of an ex-local, now living abroad. The two characters share the same fear of being gay in a homophobic society but have dealt with it in completely different ways.
