Pavilion 22

Pavilion 22 deals with one of the dark episodes of recent Croatian history – events in the notorious pavilion at the Zagreb Fair in 1991. The film reveals a completely unknown and dark side of the events that took place within the complex of the Zagreb Fair in the autumn of 1991 when the war broke out. Originally conceived as a center for the mobilization of police reserve forces, the aforementioned pavilion soon became a transit camp for all suspects, mostly of Serbian nationality, from where the so-called Merchep’s unit led many to liquidation in Pakračka Poljana.
