Today myself (John), Nika, Ronald, Pim, Moritz & Eric (along with one of our lovely local connections Elvis) went to the old Kinostudio and the Murabi Academy of Film & Multimedia. We got to see a bit of the original Kinostudio building (though some parts are closed off and it seems pretty unused for the most part.) The Kinostudio was the only studio which produced films during the communist times. We met with the school’s rector and also important film director Kujtim Çashku, who talked with us quite in depth about various aspects of film, from his own work to touching upon various themes of Albanian cinema. There’s so much to digest but for now, some photos in and around the Kinostudio and the Academy.
