The Siege

A Feature film by Rémy Ourdan, Patrick Chauvel

Produced by Agat Films & Cie / Ex Nihilo

    At the end of twentieth century, Sarajevo lived through the longest siege in modern history. The Siege is a film about those who lived through it, about the human experience of the besieged. Through Sarajevo to beyond Sarajevo, it is the story of a surrounded city, of a battle and resistance. It is also the universal story of a civilization facing a terrible challenge to its existence, of a struggle for its survival. Sarajevo resisted and survived. The Siege describes a vertiginous descent into war.
