Kosovo, 2015, 40 min.

Director Fitim Shala

The documentary #MendojPërTy#ThinkingOfYou (The Making of) tells the moving story of the activists who in June 2015 realized AlketaXhafaMripa’s art installation, dedicated to survivors of wartime rape in Kosovo. Five thousand dresses were collected across the country and hung on clotheslines in the stadium of Prishtina. Since the 1998-99 war, this was the first time the taboo of wartime rape was debated in public thanks to the extraordinary mobilization of women in the society and the institutions. Through the intimate force of art, they created solidarity with those who had felt isolated for seventeen years.
