66 min.DK/Documentary

In »Seasons of Blood and Hope« we meet Serbs and Albanians from Kosovo. The shooting of the film started in Kosovo November 1998, four months before the NATO bombing, and it ended one year later in November 1999. This period proved to be the most painful and dramatic in the recent history of Kosovo. We meet the people ¿ natives of Kosovo ¿ who belong to the different sides of the conflict and who fled to Serbia and Montenegro.
