LA Times Story About Threats Against Actress in Film "Grbavica"

On the one hand, this is a depressing story. On the other, it is encouraging that the pirated version is selling briskly. Any facsist government is essentially a thugocracy, and it's clear that in Republika Srpska, the bullies are still in charge.

The musty staleness of 'Greater Serbia' must be confining indeed.
