Personal project - Waiting for Darko.
Haris 17 years old.
He plays in the basketball court surrounded by student dormitories: “Before the NATO bombing – he remembers – we were all together, we were living with our families in the south part of Mitrovica”. At school he learned that the law is one of the three most important powers of a state, and that is why he wants to become lawyer.
Mitrovica has two parallel worlds, divided by a civil war for which people are still licking their wounds.
A series of portraits that represent the diversity but also the similarities of the suffering: from a rebel Albanian girl who tells the status of women and the importance of virginity for his peers, a serbian student who laments continuing violence by the Albanian, the precariousness of living in a occupied building, the expedients to survive of a fundamentalist Albanian Muslim, the university as a possibility of social improvement for a Serb teenager.
An insight into the city, against the backdrop of the past still burns and the prospects of a future ethnic integration is uncertain, however, the population reacts, struggling for rebirth.
