Nëntor i ftohtë

Cold November

 
In den frühen Neunzigerjahren beendete die jugoslawische Regierung die Autonomie des Kosovo, löste das Parlament auf und sperrte das nationale Fernsehen zu. Alles institutionelle Leben wurde von den neuen Behörden umorganisiert, während der Großteil der Bevölkerung dagegen demonstrierte. Während dieser schlimmen Zeit muss sich der Archivar Fadili zwischen zwei Optionen entscheiden, die beide falsch sind. Also schluckt er seine Scham hinunter, erträgt den Druck von allen Seiten, und nimmt das schlechte Gerede auf sich – um weiter für seine Familie sorgen zu können. (San Sebastián International Film Festival)

Kosovo, early 1990s. The heating in Fadili’s apartment is out again. There has been widespread concern throughout Prishtina since the Yugoslav government no longer recognises the autonomy status of the region. Regardless, the Albanian archivist Fadili has kept his optimism and cares lovingly for his family. When one day a Serb replaces his boss and Fadili’s Albanian colleagues quit their jobs as an act of protest, he is faced with an impossible decision. With an authentic 1990s look, director Ismet Sijarina tells of the dilemma faced by a man who wants to protect his family at all costs, but does not want to betray his political convictions.
