The Tourism Association of Sarajevo Canton is organizing a symbolic commemoration of the anniversary of the event known in history as the Sarajevo assassination, which placed Sarajevo in the very center of world events on June 28th, 1914, when a fateful shot was fired near the Latin Bridge, that indirectly triggered the beginning of the World War I.
Citizens of Sarajevo Canton, domestic and foreign tourists will have the opportunity to attend an acting performance with historical figures from the Austro-Hungarian period (Archduke Franz Ferdinand, Sophie Chotek and Gavrilo Princip) and take photos, share and send photos via social networks, and talk to the actors. Academic actors Fatima Kazazić, Deni Mešić and Filip Radovanović, in credible replicas of costumes from that time, will be at the authentic location of the Sarajevo assassination on
Monday, June 28th, 2021, from 11:00 to 13:00.
The Sarajevo Museum 1878-1918 will be free for all visitors.
THE PROJECT #SARAJEVOREBORN HAS BEEN CREATED TO STRENGTHEN AND PROMOTE CULTURAL TOURISM IN THE CITY OF SARAJEVO.
IT IS DESIGNED IN A WAY THAT YOUNG BOSNIAN ACTORS AND ACTRESSES, DRESSED UP AS SOME OF THE MOST IMPORTANT HISTORICAL FIGURES OF THE OTTOMAN AND AUSTRO-HUNGARIAN EMPIRE IN BOSNIA AND HERZEGOVINA, WALK AROUND PEDESTRIAN STREETS AND PERFORM AT CULTURAL AND HISTORIC SITES IN SARAJEVO, INTRODUCING TOURISTS AND VISITORS WITH PARTS OF IMPRESSIVE HISTORY OF OUR COUNTRY AND OUR CAPITAL CITY.
ASIDE FROM ACTORS WHO CONVINCINGLY EMBODY THE HISTORICAL FIGURES, YOUNG BOSNIAN ARTISTS WHO MADE THE MASKS AND COSTUMES, AS WELL AS DIRECTED THE PERFORMANCES, GIVE A VERY SPECIAL TOUCH TO THE WHOLE PROJECT.
THROUGH THE PROJECT WE PRESENT ISA-BEG ISAKOVIC, GAZI HUSREF BEG, FRANZ FERDINAND, SOFIA CHOTEK AND GAVRILO PRINCIP.
THE DISTINCTIVENESS OF THIS TOURIST OFFER AND PROMOTION IS THAT IT GIVES TOURISTS AND CITIZENS A UNIQUE OPPORTUNITY TO INTERACT WITH ACADEMIC ACTORS AND ENJOY THEIR PERFORMANCES,
WHILE GIVING THEM INFORMATION ABOUT THE PAST AND PRESENT OF THE DESTINATION IN A DIFFERENT AND THEATRICAL WAY. IN THE TIME OF SOCIAL MEDIA DOMINANCE, BEAUTIFUL PHOTOGRAPHS OF THESE PERFORMANCES HAVE BECOME A GREAT MARKETING FOR THE CITY OF SARAJEVO, AS AN ATTRACTIVE TOURIST DESTINATION, AS WELL AS A TERRIFIC MEMORY OF THE CITY.
THE PROJECT #SARAJEVOREBORN WILL ALSO INCLUDE SPECIAL MOVIE SCREENINGS IN THE CITY HALL. TOURISTS AND CITIZENS WILL HAVE AN OPPORTUNITY TO WATCH FILMS THAT THEMATIZE SARAJEVO AND ITS COMPLEX HISTORY, FREE OF CHARGE.
THIS PART OF THE PROJECT STARTS WITH 8 SCREENINGS OF THE MOST INTERESTING SHORT FILMS FROM THE OMNIBUS ‘’BRIDGES OF SARAJEVO’’, WHICH THEMATIZES SARAJEVO AND EUROPE BEFORE, DURING AND AFTER THE FIRST WORLD WAR. THE OMNIBUS FILM PREMIERED AT THE CANNES FILM FESTIVAL.
