I also shot a great deal of footage for a documentary I was making at the time called Blood On The Tracks. As such, I can wholeheartedly relate to so much of what Australian author, Craig Jurisevic, has written in this gut-wrenchingly candid, compassionate and nigh Chekhovian account of the war in Kosovo — which took place during the last year of the last century. Whilst the likes of the ghastly Spice girls were still espousing vacuous girl power, and Prince bequeathed all and sundry to party like no other year before nor since, small children were being regularly garrotted to death by grown men, a mere sixty minutes flying time from London and Paris. Not so much hard to be believe, as shameful to believe — but nevertheless true. Old men were being hacked to death in hospital beds while pregnant women were being raped and meticulously slaughtered in their thousands by Serb Paramilitary Units — all in the name of nationalism.
