Narrow is the Gate / Kitsas on värav
Estonia 2002 / 65 min
This is the story of an old nun from Gracanica Serbian Orthodox Convent in Kosovo, who shares with the viewers her life experience in a region dominated by ethnic conflict. Her narratives integrate a present problem, the conflict between Serbs and Albanians, into the more general development of Kosovo during the XX century, from the point of view of an "eye-witness". The character offers a direct contact with the hardships of the Serbs in Kosovo, but she’s also a perfect human sample of the ethnic prejudice and discriminatory thinking that lies at the root of the tensions in Kosovo.
NB! Introduction of the films by the author.
