ROUTE-3

SHORT FILM
BY THANASIS 
NEOFOTISTOS

synopsis

In a tram on Route-3, the Old Lady in the leopard dress treats the passengers with juicy oranges during a hot, but rainy day in the centre of Sarajevo. Nadja, the princess-teen in her pink hijab; Luka, the virgin bully; an Orthodox Priest; an old creepy man and many, many more ordinary people in this tram have nothing in common, but a juicy slice of orange. All except a shy, yet horny, teenager named Amar.

● The film is shot inside the most historical Tram of Sarajevo: the Vienna's Tram.

● The "Sarajevo City of Film" project's idea was to merge alumni Sarajevo Talents to work together and create a short film tribute to Sarajevo City. The Director, Screenwriter, Producer and DOP were all alumni Talents. 

● LOGLINE:
 "Sex, Hijabs & a Tram full of oranges!"

"As someone who is familiar with the unpleasant feeling of being afraid to express my attraction to someone in public, I identify with Amar, a teenager discovering his “forbidden” sexual attraction for this beautiful Muslim girl. I understand how he feels trapped and judged by the strangers in this conservative, yet full of sexual energy, tram ride of the historic Route-3 in the centre of the charming city of Sarajevo."
