Thats the number of Croatian war veterans -branitelji that have taken their own lives since the homeland war. This tragedy has come about mainly due to the consequences of PTSD or Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. A lot of them have felt marginalised in society very similar to the Australian Vietnam War vets of the seventies. Of that number the other tragedy is the 156 wives and 52 kids of Croatian war veterans that have also taken their own lives.
Croatian movie director and producer Jakov Sedlar famous for brilliant films like "Gospa", "Četverored" and documenatries on people like our own football legend Joe Simunic.
We understand that one film cannot stop this completely but even if it stops one person from taking their own life it will be worth all the money and effort. This feature film will be made up of 45 of the best Croatian actors and filming will start in January 2018. The whole project comes at a cost of $900,000 and there is a shortfall of $190,000. The donators names will be shown in the credits at the end of the film. Please give what you can as every dollar counts.
