Herceg Novi, 3 September 2005 - UNICEF Serbia and Montenegro and its national ambassador, film director Emir Kusturica, organised a special preview of the film “All the Invisible Children” in Herceg Novi, on 3 September 2005. 
 “All the Invisible Children” is a set of powerful stories that deal with the most pressing and important of social issues – the neglect and exclusion of children and their deprivation of childhood. It comprises seven different segments by seven directors, each one representing a different country or region of the world: Emir Kusturica for Serbia and Montenegro; Mehdi Charef for Africa; Spike Lee for the United States; Katia Lund for Brasil; Jordan Scott and Ridley Scott as a father-daughter team for the United Kingdom; Stefano Veneruso for Italy; and John Woo for China.
