The Weight of Chains is a Canadian documentary film that takes a critical look at the role that the US, NATO and the EU played in the tragic breakup of a once peaceful and prosperous European state - Yugoslavia. The film, bursting with rare stock footage never before seen by Western audiences, is a creative first-hand look at why the West intervened in the Yugoslav conflict, with an impressive roster of interviews with academics, diplomats, media personalities and ordinary citizens of the former Yugoslav republics. This film also presents positive stories from the Yugoslav wars - people helping each other regardless of their ethnic background, stories of bravery and self-sacrifice. Written by
A very good documentary that brings out a lot of emotion to the lives that have been affected by the wars in Yugoslavia. It's not easy to make a film like this so long after the wars, given that there's been so much spin by the people who were behind the break up of the country. It's even harder when you take into account that the information that needed to be gathered is spread so far and wide in several continents. I'm looking forward to the film being shown in the countries of the former Yugoslavia so that the people can have a sober look at the past and balance the scrutiny against what so called "experts" have produced about the region and the history of the break up.
