The documentary was made by the teams of Croatian and Serbian journalists led by director Janko Baljak and Feral Tribune journalist Drago Hedl. The authors used hitherto unpublished footage of Zastava Film, Serbian Army Archives and TV Novi Sad, some HTV’s war footage never shown yet, as well as an amateur video footage of an anonymous Croatian veteran of the Battle of Vukovar. The author interviewed around eighty persons from Serbian and Croatian sides, soldiers, paramilitaries, civilians, and politicians. They all talk about the preparations for war in Vukovar, the fall of the city, the roles of individual generals, and the details of arms supply.
Janko Baljak was born in Belgrade in 1965. He graduated from the Department of Directing at the FDU in Belgrade. His first feature film, ‘On Account of Reasonable Doubt’, was made in 1996. His other films are: ‘Slušajte novosti dana’, ‘Derbi’, ‘Dogodilo se jednom u Srbiji’, ‘Vidimo se u Čitulji’, ‘Etnički čisto’, ‘Tabacco road’, ‘Anatomija bola’, ‘Anatomija bola - mrtvi ubijaju’.
