Special Screening: Në Mes/ In BetweenJuly 11, 2019
After its cinematic journey across Europe, we are happy to announce a special screening of Në Mes/In Between.
The film presents the first directorial debut of our own Samir Karahoda and Kosovo’s first entry at Berlinale shorts and will have its national premiere at DokuFest.
In 2011, I was working on a photography project entitled “Kosovar Brothers”. That project became the inspiration for this film. During that time, I had the opportunity to meet many family landowners who were willing to talk to me about the various reasons why they had built identical houses for each of their sons.
“Në Mes”/ “In Between” signifies the relationship and solidarity between brothers; the sacrifice and determination of the parents to maintain harmony within the family; and, the meaning and significance of the home. The film brings a story of families who invest in building identical houses. What specifies the film is the solitude. It is usually only a single house that is occupied, commonly by fathers or the eldest brothers. The rest of the family, in every case rest of the brothers, were living and working abroad, but their property in Kosovo is divided equally over a strong paternal supervision. So the film also touches on the aspect of migration and longing.
The team and some of the film protagonists will be in attendance at the film screening which will be followed by Q&A with the director Samir Karahoda and the producer Eroll Bilibani.
Në Mes/In Between will screen at Kino Lumbardhi, on August 09 starting from 20:15.
