2008 / Bosnia and Herzegovina / 22min

This is a story about unique choir Pontanima from Sarajevo. In 1996 all the people of Bosnia-Herzegovina were emerging from a war horrific beyond understanding. Massive ethnic cleansing and campaigns of terror had scared the people and left them with little hope. In this environment, the founder of the choir, Franciscan priest Ivo Marković, gathered a small group of musicians to sing for mass in his church. Because they could not find enough Catholics, he and the conductor, Josip Katavić, invited people of other faiths.
