Description (required)

The Weight of Chains is a Canadian documentary film directed by Boris
Malagurski which analyzes the role that the United States, NATO and
the EU played in the breakup of Yugoslavia.
The Weight Of Chains presents a new perspective on Western involvement
in the division of the ethnic groups within Yugoslavia and argues that
the war was forced from outside, while regular people wanted peace.
However, according to the author of the film, extreme fractions on all
sides, fuelled by their foreign mentors, outvoiced the moderates and
even ten years after the last conflict the hatred remains and people
continue spreading myths of what really happened in the 1990s.[5]
The film starts off with a brief history of Yugoslavia, explaining the
idea of Yugoslavia and how it came to exist. Narrated by Malagurski
himself, the film explains what happened in Yugoslavia during World
War II and how Titos Yugoslavia was formed. The pace slows down as
Titos death is documented and the author moves on to explain what
happened to the Yugoslav economy in the 1980s, with specific mention
of Ronald Reagans National Security Decisions Directive 133 from
1984, which presents U.S. interests in Yugoslavia as promoting the
"trend towards a market-oriented Yugoslav economic structure". The
role of the National Endowment for Democracy in Yugoslavia is then
analyzed and connected to the formation of G17 Plus. Privatization
through liquidation is explained in a plastic manner, and presented as
a major cause for the rise of ethnic tensions in the late 80s and
early 90s, further fueled by Foreign Operations Appropriations Act
101-513, enacted during the George H. W. Bush era.
Slobodan Milosević, Franjo Tuđman and Alija Izetbegović
then receive a fair dose of critique in the film, with all of them
described as being power-hungry and without much concern for their
people. Domestic war mongers dont go unmentioned either. The role of
local media is presented as having a major influence on mobilizing
public opinion in favor of a conflict. The film then elaborates that
the West openly diplomatically and covertly militarily supported
separatist groups and encouraged conflict so that NATO could jump in
as peacekeepers for their own interests. What the West gained in all
of the republics of the former Yugoslavia is thoroughly depicted in
the film. The film includes never before seen footage of a village in
Bosnia where Serbs and Bosnian Muslims lived together up to the end of
the Bosnian war, but were separated in peace times - with Serbs saying
goodbye to their Muslim neighbours, who decided to collectively leave
to their own entity, in tears.
The topic of Kosovo is covered most out of all the issues and the
history of the region is carefully explained to show why the Kosovo
war broke out. The film talks about the Battle of Kosovo, Kosovos
re-accession into Serbias sovereignty in 1912, the persecution of
Kosovo Serbs during World War II and Titos Yugoslavia, as well as
plans of Albanian irredentists to create an ethnically pure Greater
Albania. The film then discusses what interests the Western powers had
in Kosovo and why they decided to intervene in a secessionist war in
1999. Questions such as why a cigarette factory was bombed by NATO
(and later bought by Phillip Morris) are tackled, with the conclusion
that the purpose of the war was to economically colonize the country.
This film also presents positive stories from the war - people helping
each other regardless of their ethnic background, stories of bravery
and self-sacrifice. For this purpose, the widow of Josip Kir (former
police chief of Osijek, Croatia) Jadranka Reihl-Kir was interviewed
concerning her husbands attempts to resolve ethnic issues back in
1991 in a peaceful manner. The widow of Milan Levar, Vesna Levar, was
also interviewed and spoke on her husbands fight to expose policies
of ethnic cleansing in his hometown of Gospić, Croatia, where
Croat forces killed dozens of Serb civilians. Another story of a local
hero covered is that of a young Serbian man by the name of Srđan
Aleksić, whose father talks how his son saved a Muslim man from
certain death.
After discussing the wars of the 1990s, the film deals with what
happened afterwards and how policies of the International Monetary
Fund and the World Bank affected the newly created former Yugoslav
states. Furthermore, the European Union is presented in a negative
context and a theory is presented that Eastern European states were
never meant to be colleagues and equals with the West, but rather
markets for Western industrial goods and cheap labor. The way in which
the debt of the former Yugoslav countries has changed from 1990 to
2010 is graphically depicted, with revelations on how much money each
citizen of the former Yugoslavia would have to pay in order for their
countries to be debt free.
The message of the film is that of peace, but also a sober reminder of
the negative consequences of globalization, advocating the idea that
the people of the former Yugoslavia should stop quarreling between
each other and become aware of why their country really fell apart,
who benefited and whats still happening to this day.
Must watch!!!!!
