Goli Otok| 51mins
Director: Darko Bavoljak | Producer: Darko Bavoljak
Focus Years: 2012 | Country: Croatia (Hrvatska)
The documentary ‘Goli otok’ presents the history of the concentration camp built on an island at the Croatian northern seashore bearing the same name, during the clashes between Tito and Stalin from 1949 to 1955. The reconstruction of life at the camp and of the methods of political ‘re-building’ is based on the testimonies of the former prisoner Alfred Pal, while the words of the former general of the UDB (Yugoslavian secret political police) Jovo Kapičić reveal the ‘establishment’s’ view on the logics and the motives that led to the creation of the Camp. This documentary also reveals more than a few non-published documents of the Yugoslav secret services shedding new light on the consequences of the Tito-Stalin skirmish that spelled doom for the condemned ‘enemies of the state – Stalin’s allies’. The work tends to give more than one narrative angle to this problem, and to settle this phenomena in its political, historical and ideological context.
