What Are You Looking At?, a story Tanovic describes as being "about a city in an indefinitely prolonged post-war period, without heroes and with its values hijacked by corruption and crime", is still in the early development phase. The central character is Jasmin, living in Sarajevo alongside his friends and enemies, in a period of transition that has gone on for almost 20 years."For the first time in my life I have felt a need to do a story about the city I live in. Everything I love about it, everything I believe in is gradually falling apart before my very eyes. I do not believe that a revolution in the minds of my fellow citizens is possible, but I hope that this story will get them to start thinking," said Tanović.

As it is stated in European Commission΄s website, the winning project, submitted by the Sarajevo-based production company SCCA/, scored the highest points out of all the applications submitted in the latest selection round for film development funding from MEDIA. What Are You Looking At? was selected as the best new film project by European independent experts for its outstanding artistic content in combination with promising strategies for development, production and distribution, including strong European box-office potential.
