Biography

Academy Award-winning screenwriter and movie director for the 2001 Bosnian film Zero Man’s Property. He went to the Academy of Performing Arts in Sarajevo, but his education was cut brief through the siege. He became a member of a film team that documented the Military of Bosnia and Herzegovina through the battle. His film No Man’s Property, his feature debut, screened in the 2001 Cannes Film Event and continued to earn him 42 honours. He and his wife elevated five kids collectively. He was offered his 2001 Greatest SPANISH Film Oscar by John Travolta and Sharon Rock.
