My Country Called


The original film title takes the last words of the refrain of the Italian national anthem. The film tells the story of Luca, Emerico, Angelo and Salvatore--four soldiers sent on peace mission to Iraq, Kosovo, and Bosnia--who later developed cancer from exposure to depleted uranium. Their accounts interweave the drama of recovery from cancer, return to civilian life, and indifference by state institutions. A compelling enquiry into a disorder known as the Balkan syndrome which has aroused little concern despite the deaths of 164 young soldiers and the 2500 cases reported so far. <%YOUTUBE=M-YgYykvfK0%>
