    KOSOVO 2.0 @ DokuFest: Sunday’s final countdown

    3

From Kosovo 2.0

It’s the final day of what’s been an incredible DokuFest. In order to make sure you don’t end up feeling you wasted your final hours, we’ve compiled a list of great films to watch today.

My Name is Salt (2pm @ Shtepia e Kutlures)

Director Farida Pacha’s documentary follows Chhanabhai and his family as they dedicate eight months of their lives to the unforgiving task of extracting salt from the desert.

The family are not alone, but one of thousand who return every year, in a futile rhythm reflected in the film’s visuals.

Life May Be (4pm @ Kino Klubi)

Life May Be is a joint effort from Iranian director Mania Akbari and British film obsessive Mark Cousins. The film is a series of letters between two great minds. Read our full review here.

Cathedrals of Culture (6pm @ Doku Kino)

Six titans of filmmaking were brought together to direct Cathedrals of Culture, a 3D film exploring the idea that buildings have souls.

Each director has taken an iconic building and essentially allowed it to speak for itself.

Featuring contributions from Robert Redford (founder of the Sundance Film Festival), Wim Wenders (film festival jury darling) and Michael Glawogger (revolutionary filmmaker subject of a DokuFest 2014 special program) amongst others. Expect big things from this simple premise.
