Tuesday cinema program during October/November will focus on films that can inspire Climate Action.
Every evening between October 27 and 31, starting at 18:00, some of the cult films produced by Kosovafilm, curated by Lumbardhi Foundation will be screened at Dokukino.
Kosovafilm is a film production, distribution and screening company which was established in 1969. Along with RTP (Radio Television Prishtina), the company had a big role in the development of the cinema culture in Kosovo. It produced more than 35 films, including fiction, documentaries and animations. Kosovafilm has also imported and distributed more than 200 films, mostly from Europe and the USA. However, the vitalisation of the film production in Kosovo coincided with the beginning of a political repression against the country in the early 1980s Yugoslavia.
Kosovafilm: Fragments will screen 5 films from those discordant years, including from the renowned directors such as Isa Qosja, Besim Sahatçiu and others. Aesthetical values on one side, the films give a glimpse of the contradictory existence of a country through their cinematic metaphors, enigmas, mysteries and tensions.
