Scream for Me Sarajevo is the amazing and astonishing story of the most unlikely of rock concerts, performed by Iron Maiden frontman Bruce Dickinson in 1994, in the midst of the Siege of Sarajevo. This is a film about extraordinary people defying the horrors of war, and the musicians who risked their lives to play a show for them. Featuring footage from the historic gig, the film also meets those that made it to the show; determined to keep living their lives despite the constant threat to their survival. Interviews with the band and the personnel who made it happen bring home the reality of the situation that was not only dangerous, it was barbaric. 'We weren't protected, there was no plan and the bullets were real, but...we went anyway.' said Bruce in his recent best-selling autobiography What Does This Button Do, 'The gig was immense, intense and probably the biggest show in the world at that moment for the audience and for us. That the world didn't really know didn't matter. It changed the way I viewed life, death and other human beings'. This release will be supported by a cinema exclusive Q&A with the film's protagonist and Iron Maiden's lead vocalist Bruce Dickinson and hosted by Metal Hammer journalist Dom Lawson.
