This documentary tells the riveting story of the next member state of the European Union: how Croatia, isolated in late 1999, broke out of its isolation, came to terms with its recent past, opened up to the rest of Europe and its neighbours and in the end convinced the rest of Europe that it was ready to join the EU.
All the major protagonists have been interviewed for this film – presidents, prime ministers, international prosecutors, nationalists and Europeanisers. The film is also a reminder how the European idea can be an inspiration for dramatic change.
The film was directed by Gerald Knaus and Fritz Ofner based on ESI research and is part of the Return to Europe film series www.returntoeurope.org supported by ERSTE Stiftung.
