SHQIPËRIA – NOTES FROM ALBANIA
Klaus Hübner, Alfred Zacharias | Albania, Austria 2012 | 72 Min. | OmdU
A place of dictatorial isolationists and trigger-happy masses, archaic family structures and trans-generational family feuds: to this day, thanks to decades of anti-communist propaganda and mass media sensationalism, Albania is still regarded as backwards and dangerous. This oversimplified prejudice stands in contrast with a reality a thousand times more complex. SHQIPËRIA – NOTES FROM ALBANIA offers a flow of stories from Albania, displaying this blank spot on the map of Europe in all its contradictions.
