Tanovic Turns Politician
Bosnian filmmaker Danis Tanovic has launched his own political party in a bid to encourage more people to vote.
The No Man's Land director, 38, hopes the new Our Party will appeal to people who have failed to vote in previous elections.
He says, "This is an attempt to move the things forward from the present deadlock and we can offer a new choice to Bosnians who have been complaining for years there is nobody adequate they could vote for."
Tanovic also hopes the new party will appeal to younger voters, who see their future in Europe.
He adds, "Our policy will be to stop ethnic squabbling, simplify the complex state structure and focus on real problems," he said. "We are aware of the challenge...What we are facing is not a hundred-meter race, it is a marathon."
