A personal summer travelogue through non-personal memories, collective personal ideals, and personal collective collectives. An old, once-upon-a-time country, reborn and undone in the blink of an eye. A youthful, romantic drive through bleak squares, forgotten roads, and reconstructed dreams. A poem.

“Monuments are good for nothing.” As monuments and museums rise around the fixed camera’s field of vision, “SK 2014” deconstructs a regime’s absurdity. The absurdity of its reading of the political, its need to mythologise itself, its absurd stones. Even in the rhythm of Offenbach, it is the graveyard of a community. Though it may appear grandiose to some.

Marriage, once dictated by strict and uniform rules, now takes on many shapes in this era of rapid social change in Kosovo. “Weddings and Diapers” introduces four couples from different regions and generations who share how they deal with chores, child raising, liberties and infidelity. Inviting the camera into their homes, they reveal the subtleties of their relationships with honesty and humour. How have roles changed and what are the limits to modernity in the sacred union of marriage? From milking the cow to a lesson in diaper changing, from watching home wedding videos to the birth of a new baby, it’s all part of the intimate ride we call love (and everything that comes with it).
