On Tour with the Blue Berets
Video: 55 min.
The United Nations Preventive Deployment Force (UNPREDEP) represents
the first use of troops for a preventive purpose in UN history.
"On Tour" documents the UN peacekeeping operation in the
Balkan republic of Macedonia.
Formerly a part of Yugoslavia, Macedonia declared its independence in 1992. A multinational force was sent into the capital city of Skopje and key border areas and has been there ever since.
Under a grant from the MacArthur Foundation
Moyemont and co-producer Stephen Maly traveled to Macedonia,
where they lived with the soldiers for a month,
documenting all phases of the peacekeepers' lives.
They then spent two weeks in Macedonian communities seeing how residents view the peacekeepers.
