Good Night Sarajevo

Good Night Sarajevo

Edu Marín, Olivier Algora
Good Night Sarajevo is the story of a voice. The voice of the Bosnian journalist Boban Minic and Radio Sarajevo during the siege of his city in the Bosnian war. A voice that night after night moved its listeners away from the brutality. Boban Minic decided to stay in Sarajevo to defend his city and become a soldier without a rifle. His only weapons were words.

Edu Marín

Director. Edu Marín (Madrid, 1984) is a “go-getter” journalist. He lived in Paris for one year, three in Morocco as a correspondent for Cadena SER in the midst of the Arab Spring, and three in Cairo as a correspondent for the Efe Agency. He is currently back living in Madrid, where he continues to make documentaries with his own production company AlemDoc, and works at La Sexta. Passionate about people and social issues, he never tires of saying that, as trite as it might sound, he became a journalist to "tell stories."

Olivier Algora

Director. Olivier Algora is French, born in Madrid in 1971. An historian and television director, he lives surrounded by nature in the mountains outside Madrid, though whenever he gets the chance, he crosses the Pyrenees to keep from falling out of touch with of his beloved south of France. With a huge social conscience, he always sets out focus on reality from a human point of view, which leads him away from narrative fiction and toward capturing whatever it is that his camera films.
