    SARAJEVO: American filmmaker and photographer Roger M. Richards will make a new documentary about the Bosnian war, told through the eyes of Dr. Asim Haracic, a medic on the frontlines and an emergency room doctor at Kosevo hospital.

    Filmmaker/photographer Roger M. Richards began documenting the siege of Sarajevo in 1992 . His work chronicled the entire war and the city’s transition to peace over the span of 17 years. "These roses are a symbol of the city and its struggle to survive the siege and afterwards when all was destroyed," Richards said.

    No further details have yet been announced. Simultaneous campaigns on both Kickstarter and IndieGoGo, the two leading crowdfunding Websites in the world, have been started to raise funds for the film.
