"Unfortunately for all those involved, the question posed in the title of the documentary Kosovo: Can You Imagine? is a resounding YES. Having covered much of the same ground and witnessed the same events myself over the past decade, I can attest to the accuracy of the film. As a young filmaker of Serbian origin, Boris Malagurski took considerable personal risk, and displayed exemplary courage to produce this work.
He is to be commended for his efforts.

about the film

Kosovo: Can You Imagine? is a documentary film by Canadian filmmaker Boris Malagurski, about the Serbs that live in Kosovo and the lack of human rights that they have today, in the 21st century.

Most of the Kosovo Serbs have been ethnically cleansed by the Albanians who make up the majority of Kosovo.

Kosovo has been under UN administration since 1999 when NATO bombed Serbia for 78 days to halt a crackdown on ethnic Albanian separatism in its province of Kosovo.

In the years following the war, thousands of Serbs were expelled from their homes, kidnapped and killed. Their houses, cultural and religious sites were burned and destroyed.

"Kosovo: Can You Imagine? demonstrates, in graphic fashion, the results of the "humanitarian"   intervention by NATO in Kosovo. Ghettos in the middle of Europe in the 21st century! The film shows why we must be so careful about exercising the "right to protect" and other catch phrases that mean well but do more harm than good."

about the director
Boris Malagurski, director of  "Kosovo: Can You Imagine?" was born in Yugoslavia in 1988. He has been a Canadian filmmaker since 2005 when he won the Best Student Film award at the International Student Film Festival in Toronto. His movie “The Canada Project” was shown on Belgrade Television, and many international film festivals around the world.

Mr. Malagurski’s visit to Kosovo has shocked him and his colleagues. In an interview, he said that he “can’t believe that this is happening in the heart of Europe in the 21st century. In an age where human rights are taken for granted in the Western world, Kosovo Serbs are battling for the most basic human rights. What makes it even worse is that Kosovo is administered by the international community and this is all happening under their nose. It’s horrible, I wonder if the politicians of the countries that have troops in Kosovo know how the international community is failing to secure a peaceful and honorable life for non-Albanian ethnic groups in the so called “multiethnic Kosovo”. I hope that his film will encourage people to ask questions and do independent research on what’s going on in Kosovo, as well as try to change things for the better and help those who are helpless.”
