The film director, Zeljko Mirkovic, and one of the main protagonists-former US pilot Dale Zelko-will be present for visiting and conversation after the screening.
In March 1999 during the Balkan conflict, Dale Zelko, US pilot of the ‘invisible’ F117A aircraft, was shot down by Zoltan Dani, missile officer in the Serbian army. That was their first encounter. Twelve years later, they are reunited as friends.  The Second Meeting is the feature documentary directed by Zeljko Mirkovic that traces the emotional journey of two different people, culturally, socially and geographically apart, who are brought together by a random act of war. It’s a poignant, uplifting story of how the bonds of friendship can be forged on the battlefield.
