Maldita: A Love Song to Sarajevo



Neither the brute force of weapons nor the spite of those who would cast everywhere in the same image have managed to wipe Sarajevo from the map. Today is it brimming with more energy than ever. Božo Vrećo, the most revolutionary artist in the Balkans, perfectly embodies the soul of this “innocent city”, seamlessly building bridges between the past and present, men and women, origins and regions. He teams up with Catalan musician Clara Peya to compose an ode to life in celebration of the love story between two cities, Sarajevo and Barcelona, who met during troubled times and have never parted company ever since.


Director, screenwriter, editor and cinematographer Raúl de la Fuente and producer, screenwriter and director Amaia Remírez set up the production company Kanaki Films and have worked together on numerous documentary projects exploring burning social issues, including Minerita (2013), winner of a Goya for Best Documentary Short and nominated for the Oscars, and Un día más con vida (2018), winner of a Goya for Best Documentary, a European Film Award for Best Animated Feature Film and an Audience Award at the San Sebastián Film Festival.
