The second in a series of screenings of the latest Outreach produced documentary Crimes before the ICTY: Central Bosnia, took place today at the Cineplexx cinema in Zagreb, Croatia. Around 25 representatives of local NGOs, Croatian institutions and diplomatic community, as well as the media and youth organisations attended the event.
After the screening, Steve Coulson, one of the producers of the documentary, and ICTY Outreach Officer Nenad Golčevski talked to the audience about the relevance of this film, and others in the series of documentaries that Outreach is producing. The series is about several of the most important trials held before the Tribunal and their contribution to the establishment of facts and development of international justice.
One of the attendees at the screening, Marijana Senjak, a psychologist who worked with the victims in the area of Central Bosnia during the conflict, thanked the ICTY for producing this documentary saying: ‘The film is very valuable as it provides an insight into the horrific experiences of the victims and also gives an excellent overview of the events in this part of Bosnia and Herzegovina during the war.’
The reception which concluded the event provided an opportunity to further discuss the value of the Outreach Programme's documentaries to current and future generations of citizens of the former Yugoslavia.
