Back to topic: Last week I attended the London screening of Scream for me Sarajevo at Vue West End. Before the screening it was bizarre to order a beer at the bar with Rod Smallwood sitting right behind me and Bruce's sons and daughter chatting with their friends, not to mention Bruce walking past. As I have said before, the film is really moving, telling the story of the siege from the perspective of the people who experienced that as teenagers. For them music meant so much that they would even rehearse without electricity. The fact that Bruce and his band were going to play in Sarajevo meant a lot to all of them (and it shows). There is a detailed description of how the concert was organised and even some footage from the gig. The music, mostly from Bruce's solo career with a Maiden song added too, is really well chosen and the lyrics fit perfectly the narrative of the film. Following the screening, there was a Q&A with Bruce, conducted by Dom Lawson (Metal Hammer). It was more a conversation than a Q&A, but Bruce was in great form, quite reflective about the whole thing and providing some insightful comments about aspects of the visit that did not make it to the film. There were some funny anecdotes, but it was mostly about the vile nature of war and how music can lift your spirit in those circumstances. Some of the people involved in the film were in the audience (Major Martin Morris, Chris Dale, Trevor Gibson...) and joked with Bruce too. At the end of the Q&A, Bruce was escorted out of the screen, only to bump into me on his way out. I thanked him for the music and the film and he answered "Thank you mate!". Surreal! All in all, a great documentary. Thankfully it will be released later in the year, as also will be the soundtrack.
