From acclaimed Croatian filmmakers Goran Devic and Zvonimir Juric comes a film vilifying the crimes of their own people. Set during World War II, The Blacks follows the tale of a fictional paramilitary group as they set out to retrieve the bodies of fallen comrades, a mission that gradually reveals the true horrors carried out under the cover of war. Sparking controversy amongst Croatian audiences with its strong anti-nationalist sentiment, The Blacks is a hard-hitting portrayal of the war crimes allegedly committed against the Serbian people during WWII, and their link to the acts of slaughter perpetuated a half-decade later. –MIFF
