Sarajevo to fete Joshua Oppenheimer

This year’s Sarajevo Film Festival (August 11-18) will pay tribute to documentarian Joshua Oppenheimer.

The two-time Oscar nominee will attend the festival to participate in a masterclass and audience Q&A session.

His films The Act Of Killing and The Look Of Silence – both hard-hitting documentaries about genocide in Indonesia - will also be screened at the festival.

Oppenheimer’s next projects include two narrative features, one of which is a musical inspired by Samuel Beckett’s play Happy Days.

In recent years, Sarajevo has feted directors including Amat Escalante, Brillante Mendoza, Atom Egoyan and Michael Winterbottom.
