VIDEO REPORTS

DEPTH TWO: An Illusion-Destroying Documentary Thriller: A documentary thriller about a subject that’s been shrouded in silence for seventeen years, mass graves in the Belgrade suburbs and the accompanying investigation into atrocities committed in Kosovo in 1999. Director Ognjen Glavonić managed to bring the story to life using simple yet powerful filmic elements: as we hear statements from people involved in the crimes and their cover-ups, and the testimony of a female survivor, we see haunting imagery shot at the locations where various parts of the crimes were carried out. Balkanist Magazine, August 12, 2016

The Unidentified is a feature-length documentary that reveals who were the commanders responsible for some of the most brutal attacks of the Kosovo war. BIRN, 2015. See also a panel discussion about war-crimes prosecutions . (YouTube, 45 minutes)

Beyond Reasonable Doubt, a documentary film produced by SENSE, examines evidence adduced from the judicial process. The film presents the testimony of victims and forensic experts, and the confessions of several of the massacre’s perpetrators, side-by-side with the denials and revisionist interpretations that seek to minimize the scale of atrocity. 2005
