TELEVISION / BRIEFING: Digging dirt on the flower trade
Friday 30 April 1993
The final story in Europe Express begins with a soldier in camouflage carrying a machine gun through the ruins of a Croatian village. For once, this picture of violence in the former Yugoslavia is make-believe - a scene from the first feature film to be made in Croatia. A Time for . . . , about the human cost of the war, is being directed by Oja Kodar. She explains her motivation: 'I said yes to this film not for my movie career, but (picking up handfuls of rubble) for this.' Making a film about Serbian aggression is not without its dangers. Serbian militia-men still patrol the nearby hills.
