De Engels-Amerikaanse speelfilm WELCOME TO SARAJEVO (1997) verbeeldt een grotendeels waar gebeurd verhaal. Dat is op zich niet zo bijzonder. Maar in de film over de Britse oorlogscorrespondent die zich ontfermt over een Bosnisch meisje, problematiseert regisseur Michael Winterbottom tevens de manier waarop de media verslag hebben gedaan van de Balkan-oorlog. En dat maakt de film interessant en een analyse ervan uitermate geschikt voor dit themanummer van TMG.----'Then there were some wolves...'An analysis of WELCOME TO SARAJEVOThe British-American film WELCOME TO SARAJEVO (1997) tells a story based largely on actual events. Though that is certainly nothing new in cinematic history, director Michael Winterbottom's film about a British war correspondent who befriends a young Bosnian girl also criticises the media's handling of the Balkan war. Bernadette Kester focuses on the film's media-related issues in her analysis.
