ABOUT THE FILM

To Tell A Ghost  is a short documentary film directed by Chris Piotrowicz and Stefan Ehrhardt.


It tells the story of Mirza Ramic, the Bosnian-born, American-based musician and one half of the electronic music duo Arms and Sleepers.


While spending most of his adult life in the US, Mirza was born in Bosnia & Herzegovina and lived there until 1992 when the Bosnian War forced his family to flee the country. Mirza and his mother would spend the next few years moving across continents, countries and states as refugees — living in Tunisia, Egypt, Italy, Croatia, Czech Republic, Arizona, and Massachusetts. Mirza’s father did not survive the war; he was killed by a mortar shell in 1993.


Mirza’s mother, a piano teacher, introduced the piano to him at the age of 6. Subsequently, the piano became the one constant in their lives as they kept changing environments and moving further away from Bosnia & Herzegovina.


To Tell A Ghost  captures Mirza's attempt to process personal loss and childhood memories while finding healing through music.
