SLOBODAN MILOSEVIC - PRESIDENT UNDER ANKLAGE/ MILOSEVIC ON TRIAL - Directed by Michael Christoffersen (Denmark, 2007, 69 minutes)

MILOSEVIC ON TRIAL

Nicknamed the Butcher of the Balkans, Slobodan Milocevic died of a heart attack on 11 March, 2006. Through exclusive interviews with key figures (the principal trial attorney, the English barrister Geoffrey Nice and Milocevic' advisors) the film follows the UN special tribunal session. By following the trial and recording the history as it unfolds since 2002, the film offers a unique insight to the strategies and obstacles of the people involved. A 4-year trial of Slobodan Milocevic was the longest war crimes case to be presented to an international court and the most important since Nuremberg.
