At the Long Night of Ideas in 2018, Traduki filled the seats of Berlin’s Cinema Babylon with literature aficionados and a list of eminent writers. This time, we turned things upside down. On 19th June 2020 we brought the seventh art directly into your living rooms!

On the menu: A selection of Southeast European films. We opened the night with the animated short Blind Vaysha, followed by the documentary The Final Adventure of Kaktus Kid. Later in the evening, it was up to the audience to decide, how they wanted to continue the night. One could choose between Borders, Raindrops and God Exists, Her Name is Petrunya, both wonderful feature films exploring different aspects of origin and belonging.

In addition, we had several live discussions and interviews with our guests, including Balkan Film Week curator Marija Katalinić, Berlinale-decorated director Teona Strugar Mitevska, and comic book artist Aleksandar Zograf on our YouTube channel. Cinematic pleasures could be had until midnight when the credits started rolling!

All Balkan Film Night Talks are still available to watch! Simply click on the talk buttons to the right or go directly to our YouTube channel.
