Defending Karadzic

D.: Aleksandar Nikolic, P.: Gregor Streiber, Inselfilm Produktion, Berlin

Ten years after immigrating from the last remnants of Yugoslavia, Marko finds himself defending one of the men most responsible for its breakup – the notorious Radovan Karadzic.

“How can you Defend someone like Radovan Karadzic?” As one of the key members of his defence team, Marko is very much used to that question. Following the young Serbian lawyer the film is detailing his struggles. How do you fight against the financial and political pressures on The Court? How do you go against the media's one-sided view of the conflict? Is it possible to establish the truth that everybody agrees on? Ultimately, the film asks the question: What does it do to a man to defend evil?
