Les Conflits dans les Balkans : Guerre d’ex-Yougoslavie

In the early 1990s a series of wars tore the countries of former Yugoslavia apart. Particularly intense and violent, these conflicts left populations devastated, but they also inspired a number of films. Film-makers - in particular those from the affected regions - have attempted to recount all the complexity of these confrontations. This has resulted in powerful, beautiful and tragic works, some carried by scathing and unbridled humour, others more reflective and engaged. 12 titles have been selected, some of which have rarely been screened in France.
