Presented by the Albanian Institute New York and the Embassy of the Republic of Kosovo

New York premiere. Germany/Kosovo/FYROM/France. Dir. Visar Morina. 2015, 104 mins. In Albanian, German, Serbian, and English with English subtitles. With Val Moloku, Astrit Kabashi, Adriana Matoshi. This heartrending father-son saga is a timely look at the refugee plight as seen through the eyes of a child. In Kosovo in the early 1990s, ten-year-old Nori (Val Maloku) and his father (Astrit Kabashi) eke out a meager subsistence selling cigarettes on the streets. But when his father flees to Germany without him, the steadfast Nori boldly follows after him, making the risky journey across Europe as an undocumented immigrant. Winner of the Best Director award at the Karlovy Vary International Film Festival and of multiple prizes at the Munich Film Festival, the feature debut from Kosovar-born, Germany-based director Morina marks the arrival of an impressive new talent.
