A pilot filmed over a day and night in the company of a group of ‘Aid Mercenaries’ mostly hardcore ex-Army truckers who drove humanitarian-aid convoys during the Balkan conflict as much for hard-cash and kicks as for any humanitarian motivations. I got access to film at one of the groups yearly reunions in the English home counties (on the condition I paid for the lamb!) with the intention of trying to get under the skin of these less than likeable characters,whose politics and attitudes many may find objectionable. If commissioned I had hoped to produce a real life version of Henri-Georges Clouzot’s ‘The Wage of Fear’ which would – as a result of the geopolitical events that followed – have probably taken me to Iraq, Afghanistan and the Congo.
