Death in Sarajevo, loosely based on the monodrama Hotel Europe by Bernard-Henri Lévy, revolves around the 100th anniversary of 
the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand, and looks at both contemporary Bosnian and European society. It is a co-production between Bosnia's SCCA/Pro.ba and France's Margo Cinema, with The Match Factory handling the international sales.
