The Family lief 2021 im Festival Watchroom.

Serbia after the fall of former ruler Slobodan Milošević in 2001: Having already resigned, the former president, who is held responsible for countless war crimes as a key figure in the Yugoslav war, is waiting in the family villa for his imminent arrest and transfer to the war crimes tribunal in The Hague. Three days amid family and friends as the situation comes to an almost unbearable head. 

"Der Untergang" and Hitler's last days in the Führerbunker send their regards as the Serbian miniseries "The Family" switches gears for three days to the former center of Serbian power. For the first time, the ex-president accused of crimes against humanity before the International Court of Justice thus becomes the focus of a cinematic or serial coming to terms with the past. After being awarded a prize at the Sarajevo Film Festival, it has already triggered bitter controversy between the still irreconcilable camps.
