film profile] is a Kosovan-Macedonian co-production. Screened in the East of the West competition at this year's Karlovy Vary International Film Festival, the director’s feature debut follows the story of Agron, whose return home after the conflict in Kosovo surprises his family because they thought he was dead, and had finally learned to live without him. While they warmly welcome him home, they also quickly begin pondering more practical matters and decide that it is better for the family’s livelihood if he remains dead in the official records, where he is listed as a war victim. We met up with Bajraktari at the festival to talk about the movie.
