Freedom From Despair
Documentary * USA/Croatia * 2004 * 95 Min
Director: Brenda Brkusic

Narrate by John Savage, this ambitious documentary portrays the incredible journey of Kruno Brkusic, who as a young man risked his life to flee Communist Yugoslavia – a regime that suppressed Croatian culture through state sanctioned terror, imprisonment, and exile. This celebration of culture, democracy, and the abiding strength of the human spirit offers a look at the dissolution of a Yugoslavia previously not represented in American media.

Human Rights Awareness/Freedom From Despair Forum
9:30-10:15 PM
Guests: Brenda Brkusic (Filmmaker, Freedom From Despair)

Join participants of the multi-award winning film, Freedom From Despair, to learn more about an often overlooked piece of history: communism in the former Yugoslavia and stories of those who fought to save their war-ravaged homeland in the 1990’s.

$9 admission for students/seniors available at the box office with proper identification.
