THE BLACKS (2009) [feature]

Croatia (MIFF 2010 , International Panorama)

Looking for the enemy, they found it where nobody expected - in themselves.

From acclaimed Croatian filmmakers Goran Devic and Zvonimir Juric comes a film vilifying the crimes of their own people.

The Blacks follows the tale of a fictional paramilitary group as they set out to retrieve the bodies of fallen comrades, a mission that gradually reveals the true horrors carried out under the cover of war.

Sparking controversy amongst Croatian audiences with its strong anti-nationalist sentiment, The Blacks is a hard-hitting portrayal of the war crimes allegedly committed against the Serbian people during the Balkan war.
