The Weight Of Chains presents a new perspective on Western
involvement in the division of the ethnic groups within Yugoslavia and
argues that the war was forced from outside, while regular people wanted
peace. However, according to the author of the film, extreme fractions
on all sides, fuelled by their foreign mentors, outvoiced the moderates
and even ten years after the last conflict the hatred remains and people
continue spreading myths of what really happened in the 1990s.
The film starts off with a brief history of Yugoslavia,
explaining the idea of Yugoslavia and how it came to exist. Narrated by
Malagurski himself, the film explains what happened in Yugoslavia
during World War II and how Tito'sYugoslavia
was formed. The pace slows down as Tito's death is documented and the
author moves on to explain what happened to the Yugoslav economy in the
1980s, with specific mention of Ronald Reagan's
National Security Decisions Directive 133 from 1984, which presents
U.S. interests in Yugoslavia as promoting the "trend towards a
market-oriented Yugoslav economic structure". The role of the National Endowment for Democracy in Yugoslavia is then analyzed and connected to the formation of G17 Plus. Privatization through liquidation
is explained in a plastic manner, and presented as a major cause for
the rise of ethnic tensions in the late 80s and early 90s, further
fueled by Foreign Operations Appropriations Act 101-513, enacted during
the George H. W. Bush era.
