Heroes of Hope

Synopsis

This one-hour Special Report tells the dramatic story of relief workers who put their own lives on the line to help victims of Kosovo’s war return to their homeland and rebuild from the rubble. As one of the first journalists to enter Kosovo after the war ends, Director Beth Murphy documents evidence of ethnic cleansing, witnesses the departure of Serb troops, and captures the reawakening of a nation silenced by the terror of forced expulsions. The war may have ended, but peace is fragile and hostilities intense, as a dedicated team of humanitarian workers begins the toughest assignment of their lives. Hosted by actor Sam Waterston and broadcast on PBS and Japan’s NHK. Nominated for a regional Emmy.
