Snjezana Video Letter


This film was shot in the sprig of 1995. Directed by Rob Mackey, the film was part of UNTV's "Video Letters" series.

In the film, a young Serbian border guard, Snjezana recalls happier times in a letter to her Croatian friend Branka from Karlovac, where they were together at school.

A few short months after this film was made the Croatian military launched "Operation Storm", a successful, but brutal action to retake the Krajna region of Coratia from rebel Croatian Serbs who had held the territory since the start of the conflict in the former Yugoslavia.

The film is now part of the UNTV collection at the Imperial War Museum.

Why this Blog?

I have set up this little blog as a means of gathering information and data for my Masters project. I will use the blog to collate some of the material that I find and post links to interesting content.

I am also planning to add some film reviews to the blog in due course.


If you have something constructive to add to the debate, please join in.

I will be moderating all the comments on this blog and my editors pen will be ruthless with any unsolicited and inappropriate nonsense!
