ALBANIA: Shqipëria – Notes from Albania

Shqipëria – Notes from Albania is a really good long-form documentary on Albania that is as much setting and silences as actual stories. It’s a series of short interviews with Albanians from all walks of life – club goers in Tirana, rural farmers, a former reality TV actor now running a B&B, the keeper of a religious shrine, a music executive, the working poor, activists, the prime minister, and one extremely rickety bridge. No narrator, just little glimpses into people’s lives (and stunning footage to boot).
