„I don't recognise other Tribunal apart from that of my own people. And I don't need any defence. I don't care how long I live. I only care about what I've done for my people in my lifetime. I'm a man who belongs to his people, like my ancestors. We will survive.” (General Ratko Mladic)
In 2017, the Bosnian Serb General Ratko Mladic was found guilty of genocide and crimes against humanity and sentenced to life in prison. Mladic was one of the most infamous figures of the Bosnian War and became synonymous with the murder of over 7000 muslims in Srebrenica in 1995 – the worst crime on European soil since World War II. Filmed over five years with unprecedented access to the Prosecution lawyers, the Defence, witnesses who came to give evidence, and Mladic’s supporters and family members in Bosnia, this film tells an epic story of justice, accountability and a country trying to escape its bloody past.
