Storyline

Kosovo: Can You Imagine? is about the Serbs that live in Kosovo and the lack of human rights that they have today, in the 21st century. Most of the Kosovo Serbs have been ethnically cleansed by the Albanians who make up the majority of Kosovo. Kosovo has been under UN administration since 1999 when NATO bombed Serbia for 76 days to halt a crackdown on ethnic Albanian separatism in its province of Kosovo. In the years following the war, thousands of Serbs were expelled from their homes, kidnapped and killed. Their houses, cultural and religious sites were burned and destroyed. Kosovo for the Serbs is what Jerusalem is for the Jewish people. It is the cradle of their statehood, culture and religion. Most of the important Serbian Christian Orthodox monasteries are in Kosovo. Today, Serbs still have a deep spiritual and traditional connection to Kosovo, a land which is being cleansed of everything Serbian. Most of the Kosovo Serbs are internally displaced, some of them live in small ... Written by Boris Malagurski

Very good documentary, and there's a more recent film from the same director-creator
28 August 2012 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Putoestupido, I will say, has a fitting username. Stupido was the "quality" of his comment or so-called review.

Scoottie wrote, "This documentary continues the great works that have documented the tragic genocide against the Serbs for many years. ...".

Look for the more recent documentary by the same creator and director, the film, "The Weight of Chains (2010)", which is a little over two hours long. IMDb has a page for this more recent film, and SerbianYouthLeague uploaded the full video at YouTube. The director and creator of the film also posted an embedded copy at TV.GlobalResearch.ca.

Boris Malagurski has been also working on trying to produce a sequel to the latter 2010 film and there's a trailer for it. The trailer, a little over two minutes long, indicates that it will be a very good documentary, if it can be ever completed. There's a funding issue and donations are needed to be able to complete the creation of the sequel, "The Weight of Chains 2". The trailer can be found at TV.GlobalResearch.ca, or directly at YouTube.

For "The Weight of Chains (2010)", SerbianYouthLeague also uploaded some deleted portions at YouTube. People just need to search for "The Weight Of Chains | Deleted Scene". There're 3 deleted scenes, and they're each about two minutes long.

There're many other videos. There's, f.e., the "TalkingStickTV - Michael Parenti - The U.S. War on Yugoslavia" video at YouTube. It's runtime is 1:17:27 and it was uploaded by the TalkingStickTV channel in 2008. It should be interesting. Michael Parenti is one of the dozen or so contributors for "The Weight of Chains (2010)", for which the official website is www.weightofchains.com. There's a Credits page, there, and I guess the brief biographies are for everyone who contributed as speakers in the film.

And there're plenty of other videos regarding what the West has caused to Serbia and the Balkans.
