Following on from the first International Conference on Balkan Cinema that took place in Athens in 2015, Balkan Cinema on the Crossroads: From Nitrate to Digital aims to explore the trajectory of Balkan cinema from the early nitrate days to the contemporary digital era, by highlighting connections, similarities and comparable patterns across the cinemas of the region.
The Balkan Cinema conference series aims to build a transnational community of scholars working on the cinemas of the Balkans, South/Eastern Europe, the border and neighbouring region as Central Europe or Near East, works of diaspora or communities in exile in a time span from early cinema on nitrate stock to contempor ary digital cinema made across new media and multiple platforms.
Life is War : Surviving Dictatorship in Communist Albania is a collection of oral histories that guides readers through through the decades (1944-1992) in which everything was controlled by the Communist Party; what work one could do, what food was available, and even who one could marry.
The reader accompanies Shannon Woodcock, the author and historian, through intimate interviews with six Albanian men and women.
