About the movie

At the Hotel Europa, the best hotel in town, the manager Omer prepares to welcome a delegation of diplomatic VIPs. On the centenary of the assassination that is considered to have led to World War I, an appeal for peace and understanding is supposed to start from here. But the hotel staff have other worries: having not been paid for months, they are planning to go on strike. Omer sees the disaster coming, but is unable to shake his obsession with the past. ‘Death in Sarajevo’ won the Silver in Berlin 2016 and the FIPRESCI from The International Film Critics Association.
