Bill Carter to screen “Miss Sarajevo” at Clark College Feb. 27
Award-winning film director Bill Carter will be at Clark College‘s Penguin Union Building from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Monday, Feb. 27, to screen his documentary film, “Miss Sarajevo.” The short film will be followed by a lecture by Carter, including a question-and-answer session and book signing. Carter is also the author of Fools Rush In, which details his experiences in Bosnia, and Red Summer, which describes a summer spent salmon fishing in Alaska’s Bristol Bay. Both books will also be available for purchase at the event.
“Miss Sarajevo” was made in collaboration with U2 and shot from within the besieged city of Sarajevo, where Carter spent a portion of the Bosnian War. In 2009, Carter was granted honorary citizenship to Sarajevo, and has shared his story with university audiences across the country, including at Boston College, Harvard University, Columbia University, Seton Hall University, the University of Washington, and Portland State University. This short film by U2 describes Carter’s effort to contact the band, and their collective efforts to end the war.
