Irish Film Institute -KISS THE FUTURE


Director: Nenad Cicin-Sain

Kiss the Future tells a story of defiance amid the 1990s’s siege of Sarajevo during the Bosnian War. The film focuses on an underground community who used art and music to garner global attention by ultimately inspiring an American aid worker to reach out to U2 to help raise awareness of the devastating conflict.

Kiss the Future follows the band’s promise to perform a post-war concert, which came to fruition when U2 played to over 45,000 local fans in a liberated city, a show that lives on as a joyous collective memory for the people of Sarajevo.
