Speakers Auditorium The film is a powerful story of the secret underground tunnel that the citizens of the city of Sarajevo dug out to escape the four-year long siege during the Bosnian war (1992-1995). The tunnel was used to smuggle the people out of the city, but also to smuggle in food, medicine, and money to the besieged population who lived in terrible conditions. The tunnel became a symbol of the brutality of the Bosnian war, the resilience of the suffering population, as well as the involvement of the international community in the Balkans conflict. A panel discussion immediately follows with film-maker Nedim Loncarevic and journalist Beatrice Toulon.
