My research regarding Albanian film led me to the national film archives here in Tirana where I found a goldmine of information relating to Albanian films. In general, the archives are in total disarray and many important archive materials are generally stacked in piles, kept in old envelopes, tossed in corners or are often damaged in some way. The amount of information there, however, will be essential to my final work. I’ll be spending a lot of time there during the upcoming 2 weeks sifting through it all. First up: photos from the trip (next up will be video documentation).
