After The War
’43, ZDF Dokukanal/HRT, 2009
A Documentary film about children at the age of 12–15, who live in the Ex-War Region of Croatia, right at the border to Bosnia. They live in the cities of Okucani, Nova Gradiska and Slavonski Brod and they´ve developed a very rare kind of bone cancer. Some scientists and doctors presume it´s because of Depleted Uranium ammunition, which has been used during the Yugoslav War in the 90ties and still pollutes the earth, on which the children play. But the dose is too small to be really alarming, scientist say, still it can assail the bones of the children during their growth. The subject is a taboo that no one wants to adress and is causing a lot of pain in the region — physically, emotionally and mentally.
