Documentary Examines Young Man’s Death That Inspired Daily Protests

“State against David”, produced by Žurnal news website, reconstructs the last hours in the life of David Dragičević, whose death inspired daily protests in Banja Luka, northern Bosnia.

Twenty-one-year-old David Dragičević was found dead on March 24 this year. The police treat his death as an accidental suicide. In addition, David was said to be a robber and drug addict.

“State against David” juxtaposes police findings with the alleged evidence the family has, and looks into the phenomenon of a civil rebellion of sorts, materialized in the group “Justice for David”. For more than two months, David’s father Davor, his friends and thousands of individuals gathered in the group have been protesting and demanding a thorough police investigation and accountability.
