Dina and Zak: A Love Story
by Dea Lalovic and Kirsti Melville (360 Documentaries, ABC, 2012)
On April 6, 1992, Serb militants opened fire on thousands of peace demonstrators in Sarajevo, beginning a siege that killed thousands, separated families and left 400,000 residents trapped in a war torn city. Around the same time, Sarajevo became the backdrop to a love story that persevered through incredible obstacles.
