We Wanted Workers, We Got People

Htjeli smo radnike, a došli su nam ljudi

Directing: Đuro Gavran


The film "We wanted workers, we got people" tells about the exploitation of Bosnian construction workers in Slovenia. One doesn’t choose one's parents or the country he or she is born in. The question of national identity determines fates of many, whether they like it or not. Citizens of many European countries go looking for a better life in the promised lands of the West, performing jobs local population doesn’t know or want to do. They’re looked upon as second class citizens and denied their basic human and social rights. In tandem with big Business, the laws are tailored so that the exploitation of these people is legal.
