"Travelling in a small red Yugo, Jergovic and Vidojkovic are exploring how many sides of historical truth one can find in the Balkans, without pretending to establish a single universal truth." Politika daily, Belgrade.
"A dynamic and intriguing history class in the form of a road movie.” Slobodna Dalmacija, Zagreb.
“Our vision of history has been changed several times over last 50 years, following the changes in the current politics” says Zeljko Mirkovic, film director. “We have had many “historical truths” in that period and somehow lost the interest for the truths of others around us. This long journey of 3000 km in a small, red Yugo was our attempt to better understand the Other, but at the same time it helped us to see ourselves better” says Mirkovic.
“It is enough just to take a look on the way some important dates from the recent wars are being commemorated in Serbia and Croatia, or to see conflicted perceptions of the Bosnian war, revived by the Karadzic’s trial in the Hague, or heated debates about the role of “chetniks” and “partisans” in Serbia – to understand that this film is not about the past, but about the present. Conflicted visions of history are not a speciality of the Balkans, but here too we should find a way to leave them behind, without creating conditions for new conflicts” says Dusan Gajic, producer of the documentary.
