Vicinities, as a unique TV format both in its idea, realisation and scope continues with its regional broadcast. The new 5th season of “Vicinities” has started at the beginning of October with the broadcast of the first episode (Mis)trust among neighbors. Which are the main reasons for the mistrust among the people in the region, is the region still burdened with the prejudices and stereotypes, and can we foresee a future where the different nationalities from the region will be ready for constructive talks and good neighborly relations.
These were just some of the questions that were part of the discussion in the first episode of the fifth season of “Vicinities”(OKRUZENJE), which had Svetlana Broz (Author, Bosnia and Herzegovina), Jadran Kapor (Journalist, Croatia), Vladimir Pistalo (Writer, Serbia), Arian Leka (Contemporary Writer, Albania) as guests in the studio.
