Sinopsis

“Težina lanaca” je kanadski dokumentarni film iz 2010. godine u režiji Borisa Malagurskog o uzrocima raspada Socijalističke Federativne Republike Jugoslavije, pozitivnim pričama iz ratova tokom 1990-ih, kao i ekonomskoj i geopolitičkoj kolonizaciji novonastalih država na Balkanu. Film koji je autoru dao epitet „srpski Majkl Mur”, otkriva poverljiva dokumenta koja potvrđuju da su postojale zakulisne radnje koje su dovele do krvavog raspada SFRJ. Mladi režiser se pojavljuje i u ulozi naratora i paralelno prenosi priču o običnim ljudima, koji su ostali dobri u zlim vremenima. Dokumentarac pokušava da baci drugačije svetlo na koren sukoba na Balkanu i za mnoge ljude, koji su prihvatili zvaničnu podelu na dobre i loše momke u Jugoslaviji, može da bude prilično gorka pilula. Pored bivšeg direktora CIA R. Džejms Vulzija, američkih zvaničnika i stručnjaka poput Džordža Kenija, Džejmsa Biseta, Luisa Mekenzija i Skota Tejlora, u filmu se kao sagovornici pojavljuju i Vlade Divac, Veran Matić, Branislav Lečić, zatim bivši slovenački ministar za ekonomiju Jože Mencinger, bivši kandidat za predsednika Hrvatske Marko Francišković, režiser Džordž Bogdanić, novinar Džon Bosnić, član Beogradskog sindikata Boško Ćirković, istoričar Srđa Trifković, članovi benda Dubioza kolektiv Armin Bušatlić i Vedran Mujagić i mnogi drugi. Film je uvršten u Biblioteku Kongresa SAD, gde će biti sačuvan i za sve buduće generacije.

The former republic of Yugoslavia was at the centre of several of the defining moments and conflicts of the 20th century, from the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand in Sarajevo to the country’s dramatic civil war in the 1990’s. With all that troubled history, as an elderly woman at the outset of Boris Malagurski’s documentary explains, “it’s not easy to say, what Yugoslavia is.”

The Weight of Chains is Malagurski’s attempt to clarify the complexity of the Yugoslavian identity by contextualizing and exposing the reality of the Yugoslav Wars and their aftermath. His sympathies lie with the wronged citizens of each country, born out of the division of the former republic.

Using some terrific archive footage and the testimony of a number of reputable experts, the film traces the fragmentation and separation of Yugoslavia. Malagurski effectively conveys the confusion of the time and, with a biting wit, suggests that nobody is blameless in the escalation of violence. The documentary ultimately appears to be about the “predatory capitalism” that the US and the EU practiced on the Yugoslavian people. Malagurski uses this term and its implications to expose the reality of 21st century colonialism and its cost.

Who in their right mind would actually want to be a colony? That is the question asked in the opening section of The Weight of Chains, the latest film directed by Boris Malagurski. His film demonstrates how the South Slavs emerged from centuries of colonial rule under the Ottoman and Austro-Hungarian empires, and unified to form an independent Yugoslavia. In sharp analytical detail, Malagurski’s film dissects how Western intervention systematically undermined that independence and helped destroy Yugoslavia, plunging the region into war in the process.

This remarkable film reveals how the West subjugated the peoples of the former Yugoslavia and exploited the region through the imposition of free market reforms. In exposing the recent history of the Balkans, the film busts a number of myths. No other film so successfully explains those events while tying them to the wider economic and political trends of these difficult times.
