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
Great documentary! Shall we no more hear "What happened to Yugoslavia"! Love it that it is done in English with a plethora of people knowledgeable about this issue and not just people who second guess. Facts presented in this movie are too hard to ignore considering their sources and it is all well tied in with never-before-seen footage, chronology of the events and Boris's great sense of humor. The message being "real heroes are not the top heads who started the whole war, but rather every day people who didn't want the war" it is hard not to sit down and loose yourself in this movie and the history. May we have more coming from Boris. :)
