Life in Kosovo discusses the Roma community in Kosovo

Posted on

This Thursday Life in Kosovo will broadcast a discussion on the much rewarded and debated movie “The Shutka Book of Records,” as well as a debate on the Roma community living in Kosovo.

In the course of the show, BIRN will also broadcast the movie “The Shutka Book of Records” and will afterwards debate on how the movie portrays Shutka and Roma people.
Why was this movie so vehemently opposed by the Roma community? Why does the image of Roma people in the movie continue to denigrate the entire community? How much do these movies contribute in the shaping of prejudices towards this community?  
To discuss these issues Jeta Xhara’s guests in the studio will be: 
Shpresa Agushi, from the Organisation of Roma, Ashkali and Egyptian Women 
Enver Petrovci, director and playwright,
Kujtim Paçaku, publicist;
Nexhip Menekshe, playwright 
In the course of the show, BIRN will also broadcast a “Week’s Highlight” report, prepared by BIRN journalist, Jeta Abazi, who brings the director of the movie “One sun, one nation,” Sami Mustafa that is also the organizer of the Roma film festival in Kosovo, scheduled for October.

Life in Kosovo is a co-production between Kosovo Public Television,
RTK and the Balkan Investigative Reporting Network, BIRN. It is
broadcast every Thursday, starting at 20:20.
