Synopsis

The docu-reportage A Murder Revisited exposes the culture of fear in Serbia today – a decade after the demise of the Milosevic regime – where indiscriminate violence orchestrated by the country’s disenfranchised hooligan youth keep intimidating the society at large.

It was meant to be a holiday trip to Belgrade for Brice Taton and his friends to support their football team Toulouse playing against Partizan, but it ended with his murder. Unaware of the climate of lynch 72 hours prior the Belgrade Gay Pride 2009, Brice and his friends were enjoying the afternoon in a public café when they were attacked by a gang of right wing hooligans.

Brice was thrown of a 10 meter high staircase and died shortly afterwards. Brice’s friend Philippe Maury is back to Belgrade a year later to unveil a deep rooted culture of post-Milosevic era violence and corruption behind Serbian hooliganism.
