Zoti i shpise / Lord of the house - trailer from Danielle Bremer on Vimeo.
A rebellious Kosovar midwife fights for acknowledgement from her family which has always lived by century-old Albanian traditions based on male-dominance. Her longing for respect and appreciation is set against the background of a transforming society where the role of these old customs, written up in ‘The Kanun’, is changing and people search for their own position in this new reality.
