'Super Modern Concentration Camp'
Bill Carter's 'Miss Sarajevo' is a surreal and startling portrait of the capital city of Bosnia, during the height of the city's siege. Equipped with a simple hand-held camera Carter manages to capture the story of young people stuck in Sarajevo during the siege from 1992 to 1996 - 'an alternative scene of artists, young people and those determined to live as normal a life as they could under the most difficult and dangerous conditions.'
The documentary, produced by Bono, won the International Monitor Award, Golden Hugo, and the Maverick Director Award (Newport Beach Film Festival). More details on Miss Sarajevo
and on what Bill is up to in 2009.
