A documentary thriller – why was a truck, filled with corpses, lifted one day from the depths of the Danube river on the Serbian-Romanian border? Where did the bodies of men, women and children come from? Seventeen years ago, NATO governments launched air-strikes against the regime of Slobodan Milošević in Belgrade. Ognjen Glavonić returns to Open City with a courageous film that reminds us just what kind of regime Milošević’s was. Glavonić uses voiceover victim testimony from the ICTY trials and one harrowing confession over a series of tableaux of the Serbian countryside to reinstate the horror that unfolded as Milošević clung with increasing desperation to power.
