‘Maldita’, the love song between Sarajevo and Barcelona that conquered the Goya Awards and that “must never die”
Maldita. A love song to Sarajevo’ reclaims with the music of singer Božo Vrećo and pianist Clara Peya the present of this city, beyond the impact of the war.
On one screen, the Bosnian singer Božo Vrećo. On the other, the Catalan pianist Clara Peya. They meet by video call and, more than 1,000 kilometres away, they imagine how to intertwine their music. This is the story of ‘Maldita. A love song to Sarajevo’, a short audiovisual film that won a Goya Award this Saturday and which captures the creative process of this artistic combo and allows us to get closer to the figure of Vrećo.
Tradition and transgression coexist in a film that is presented as a metaphor for what Sarajevo is today, beyond a recent history of war. “Inclusive, courageous, unafraid to evolve, while at the same time looking to tradition as a strong part of her personality”. These are the traits used to describe the Bosnian city by Iván Zahínos, producer of the short film, which is directed by Amaia Remírez and Raúl de la Fuente (Kanaki Films) and produced by Medicus Mundi.
