Kosovo 1999, The Valley shows us the face of civil war seen - uniquely - from both sides of the same front line. Filmed in the epicentre of the uprising, the Drenica Valley, over the bloodiest summer of the war, it achieves a level of intimacy with its subjects rarely seen in conflict documentaries.

In it we meet the inhabitants of a Muslim village destroyed by Serbs, a Christian Convent surrounded by hostile forces, the elite Black Tiger units of the KLA and the men of a Serbian village who have taken up arms to protect their lands from the surrounding Albanians. In these situations, grief is never far away.

The Kosovo Liberation Army contained many angry Albanians, sick and tired of a loss of rights, which had been revoked by their Serbian masters. Fighting to reclaim the land they believed to be historically theirs, they ran up against Serb forces with full of righteous indignation.

The Valley is now widely considered as the definitive Balkan war documentary. At a time when the question of Kosovo's political status hangs in the balance The Valley is a harrowing reminder of how and where it all began.

The hate and death during the Kosovo conflict.

Award-winning documentary that focuses specifically on the conflict ( war ) in the Drenica Valley of Kosovo during the late 1990s.
