A 2010 documentary film directed by Boris Malagurski, which argues that the breakup of Yugoslavia was orchestrated by Western powers. U.S. interests in Yugoslavia promoted a market-oriented Yugoslav economic structure through the National Endowment for Democracy, and the G17 Plus as part of a policy of privatization through liquidation which increased ethnic tensions in the late 1980s and early 1990s. Western nations supported separatist groups and encouraged conflict so that NATO could be installed as peacekeepers for their own interests. In the aftermath, the policies of the IMF and World Bank further demonstrated that Eastern European states were only seen as markets for Western goods and sources of cheap labor. The film also presents positive stories from the war - people helping each other regardless of their ethnicity, thus sending a powerful message of peace in the former Yugoslavia.
