“The Impact of Violence” reports on numerous aid programs for traumatized women and children in former Yugoslavia. “War - Hatred - Peace” investigates the reasons for this atrocious war on both sides of the front.

Press comments

“The documentary comes across so authentically, first and foremost, because the filmmaker doesn’t push the women to take a position.  They tell us much more about their situation and how they cope with the loss of their children, family members and houses.”
