Dreamers is a Bosnian short documentary film produced by the East West Theatre Company and directed by Nermin Hamzagic.[1] The film follows the story of Samir Karić and Amir Muminović, young hip-hop artists from the village of Hajvazi, near the north-eastern Bosnian town of Kalesija.[2] The mayor's son gave the hip-hop duo a bad beating because of their song which criticized municipal authorities. A newspaper report on the incident intrigues East West Theatre Company, a theatre and film production company from Sarajevo. Shortly after the incident, Samir and Amir become part of the cast of Class Enemy a play about disenfranchised youth in a violent secondary school in Bosnia and Herzegovina. Samir and Amir eventually end up touring the world with the East West Theatre Company's production. The film Dreamers is devised as a road movie.[3]
