Mothers’ struggle and the memory of their children.
Albanian Mothers are wonderful! The movie will show examples of courageous mothers who sacrifice everything for their children and families.
ALBANIAN MOTHERS OF COURAGE will follow five women of diverse backgrounds who succeed in difficult social and economic situations of immigration. The project will be completed worldwide with examples from the Totalitarian Regime in Albania and the Kosovo War.
Albanian Mothers Documentary will answer the question:
What in Albanian heritage is important in “producing” those courageous mothers?
Why are Albanian women mothers first and foremost?
Is this a cultural phenomenon? Is it specific to Albanians, or true in general across the Balkans?
Is it specific to the Balkans or for the patriarchal society in general?
Mothers of Courage examples will be chosen from different countries, including the United States, where the Albanian Diaspora is old, but also from European countries (France, Italy, Germany, Greece) where the Albanian Diaspora is recent. Mothers who survived the Albanian Totalitarian Regime and the Kosovo War will be featured in two other documentaries since the project is conceived as a triptych.
The tagline of the movie will be: Courage Mothers struggle in the memory of their children.
The Educational Goal: by showing mothers as they are perceived in the eyes of their children, we intend to focus on how mothers’ struggles to survive can influence children’s paths and give them the motivation to succeed in their own lives.
