29min · Documentary, Short, Music · 1 January 2015
Together with Vincent Moon, an independent filmmaker from Paris, who is known for his music videos for indie rock bands as well as some notable mainstream artists like Tom Jones, REM or Arcade Fire, we traveled with the help of the scholarship from the Music Board Berlin to my country Kosovo to find and record nearly forgotten old folk songs. We were interested in a particular type of folk songs - that of women farmers. A lot of women never had the opportunity to go to school and learn how to read and write, and for these women, these songs were the only way to express themselves. We recorded women with and without a high school education, women of different religions and ethnics.
