Polish film "Returns" by Krzysztof Kadlubowski won the grand prix award "Big Stamp" in the International section and Bosnian film "A Day on the Drina" by Ines Tanovic took out the Regional section of the international documentary film festival, ZagrebDox. The 8th ZagrebDox was officially closed in Zagreb last night (Sun) by the award winning 7-minute black and white Polish film. The film "Returns" records the events that took place after the plane crash that killed 96 people, including the Polish President Lech Kaczynski and government representatives near Smolensk on 10 April 2010. The winner in the regional section was Bosnian film "A Day on the Drina". Tanovic's documentary begins in August 2010, when during the repair of turbines of the hydroelectric power plant Bajina Basta in Serbia, the remains of more than 250 incomplete skeletons were found in the mud of an artifical lake. The remains belong mostly to the Bosnians killed by members of the Serbian army in Visegrad and its surrounding area in the period of 1992 to 1995. This year's ZagrebDox was a sell-out as crowds in Zagreb flocked to watch over 150 international and local documentaries. "We are happy with this festival and are proud of it, but we have enough strength and will to make it even better," said Nenad Puhovski, festival director, reports ZagrebDox official website.
