The Blue Viking in Sarajevo

Filmmaker Ado Hasanović’s short film, The Blue Viking, which has been garnering praise at film festivals around the world, follows Emilio, a Latin American street artist who’s been traveling the globe since age 19. During his performances he paints his face blue and he wears a viking helmet. The complex film is deceptively simple, just like Emilio: At first you may find yourself wondering what makes him tick, but by the end you may wish you, too, could embrace his simple and generous philosophy of life.
