In the early 20's there's a group on anarchic artistic yugoslawian yahoos traipsing around the rural never-lands of what then was the Kingdom of Serbs, Croats and Slovenes. The leader of the pack is a Serbian futurist/dadaist poet and bohemian Ljubisa Micic, who with his friends, lovers and partners, starts the highly ephemeral, Balkan's own avant guard movement the Zenith(ism)! Odd things happen as they get mired in our lovely, mostly Panonian muddy roads, while the cablegrams and exchanges keep pouring from the source so diverse (and equally famous) as a Tristan Tzarra (auf Zurich!), Vladimir Vl. Majakovsky (auf Moskau!) or the beloved Italian futurist Marinetti!

During the civil war in Bosnia, hundreds of Arab jihadists came to join Bosnian Muslims fighting against their neighbours the Serbs and Croats. Grouped into secret fighting units in Central Bosnia, this was the first time in centuries Jihad had been fought against a Western, Christian enemy. Two decades later Bosnia is still reaping the consequences. In the past month ISIS declared the Balkans the next front of Jihad - and in remote mountain villages extremists are flying the ISIS flag. Mark Urban returns to Bosnia for 'Our World' and discovers how secular Bosnian society has been infiltrated by a militant Islamism which operates to this day.

Drama | Bosnia/Herzegovina, Germany, France, Iran 2008 | Director Aida BEGIC

A fictionalized account of the plight of Muslim women in a mountain village two years after the 1995 Dayton Accords ended the ethnic cleansing of Muslims (and Croats) by their Bosnian Serb neighbours, Snow is a step up from director Aida Begic’s experimental 2001 film First Death Experience. Unobtrusively directed, this ensemble film successfully captures the special camaraderie among the survivors of such horror and the emotional and psychological toll it takes on the individuals.

A Short History of the Yugoslav Peoples

A Short History of the Yugoslav Peoples by Fred Singleton
Cambridge University Press; Reprint edition | April 26, 1985 | English | ISBN: 0521274850 | 324 pages | PDF | 8 MB

There are few countries in Europe which contain within an area as small as the British Isles such a variety of natural environments and cultures as Yugoslavia. This book provides a survey of the history of the South Slav peoples who came together at the end of the First World War to form the first Yugoslav kingdom, and who emerged from the chaos of the Second World War to become citizens of a socialist federal republic, led by the Communist Party under the leadership of Marshal Tito. Beginning in Roman times, the book traces the rise and fall of the medieval Slav principalities, the dominance of the Ottoman and Habsburg empires, the proclamation of the kingdom of Serbs, Croats and Slovenes in 1918, the disastrous effects of the German occupation and the creation of a new socialist order under President Tito.

Why is it that Catholics and Protestants in Northern Ireland have been in perpetual conflict for thirty years when they can live and prosper together elsewhere? Why was there a bloody civil war in Bosnia and Herzegovina when Croats, Serbs, and Muslims had lived peacefully side-by-side for decades? Why did nobody see and act upon the early warning signs of genocide in Rwanda that eventually killed close to a million people in a matter of weeks? What is it that makes Kashmir potentially worth a nuclear war between India and Pakistan? In recent years hardly a day has gone by when ethnic conflict in some part of the world has not made headline news.

The plot is situated in Dubrovnik and I get the impression that Zafranovic wanted to show how nice, beautiful and nonchalant life was before the war by making it to look like it is in renaissance. Three friends (a Croat, an Italian and a Jew) are having the time of their lives, singing, laughing, and having fun and girls. Then the war breaks and their friendship is eclipsed by their nationalities and religions. Instead of songs and laugh there are scenes of violence and killings. And the way in which Zafranovic has shown all that hatred between Croats and Serbs, Nazis and Jews is superb and frightening at the same time. I must mention one more scene that amazed me. It is the scene of striptease in the whorehouse. Maybe that's because of Tanja Boskovic, who is, in my humble opinion, the sexiest Serbian actress ever, but the camera work with cruising along the room and shooting it all at once with sliding back and out of the room with Tanja naked and the statue in front in the same pose is magnificent.
