SARAJEVO: Academy Award-winner Danis Tanović and Cannes FF laureate Aida Begić are currently in postproduction with Kotlina, a five-episode crime drama created by Tanović and Amra Bakšić Čamo, and produced by SCCA/ for BH Telecom and BH Content Lab.

The first two episodes of the series will be screened in the upcoming Sarajevo Film Festival’s Avant Premiere programme.

After a body of an unknown man is discovered in the garden of the National Museum in Sarajevo, chief inspector Edib Pašić and his young colleague Mido Zec are called upon to the crime scene. It seems to be one more insignificant case of no interest to the media, but a journalist from the Sloboda online magazine, Ajla Pašić, happens to be at the crime scene with a camera. On the same day, Edib’s war comrade Senči returns from prison. The disappearance of the corpse from the morgue and the hidden motives of the Museum’s employees lead Edib, Mido, Ajla and Senči into a web of corruption, pressure, personal failures, poverty, hopelessness and international crime.

The script was written by Amra Bakšić Čamo, Nikola Kuprešanin, Adnan Lugonić and Danis Tanović.

Feđa Štukan, Boris Ler, Ida Keškić and Mario Knezović are the lead actors.
