Seeking Truth in the Balkans explores the legacy of the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia (ICTY) from the human rights versus the jurisprudential perspective. We explored the insights of over 100 persons who were engaged with ICTY either in the region of the Balkans or at the Hague. In 1993 the UN Security Council unanimously voted to create a Tribunal to prosecute war crimes, crimes against humanity and genocide attributed to the worst bloodshed in Europe since the Second World War. Twenty-one years have passed the Tribunal is wrapping up its cases. With over 161 indictees all accounted for, what will be the true legacy. Was peace, justice, reconciliation or truth achieved by this landmark experiment in international law. This film attempts to explore these questions by visiting those in the region most impacted by the decisions of the Tribunal.
