|TRUE STORIES OF THE CROATIAN PEOPLE'S STRUGGLE
TO OVERCOME OPPRESSION FROM COMMUNIST YUGOSLAVIA AND THE 1990's FIGHT
TO SAVE THEIR WAR RAVAGED HOMELAND.
“Freedom from Despair is a powerful, moving film, documenting
a much neglected piece of modern history - Croatia’s struggle
for independence from the repression of Tito’s Yugoslavia and
the brutality of the Balkan War. Brenda Brkusic has created a memorable
portrait of a people, a culture, and one man’s hard-fought
journey to freedom.”
-David S. Ward, Academy Award Winning
FREEDOM FROM DESPAIR IS A CELEBRATION OF CULTURE,
DEMOCRACY, AND THE ABIDING STRENGTH OF THE HUMAN SPIRIT.
Starring Michael York, John Savage, Beata Pozniak, and Dennis Kucinich
