from Kosovo called The Kukum - Kukumi
was born in Vuthaj, Montenegro in 1947. Graduated acting from
High school for drama arts in Prishtina, and The Film Academy,
majoring in Film and TV Directing in Belgrade.
1998 Rojet e mjegulles
happens in the first couple of days after NATO troops enter
Kosovo. After the signing of the military agreement in Kumanovo,
the uniformed Serb guards, placed at the institution for
mentally challenged people, leave their posts and flee. Everyone
who worked in this institution joined them, leaving the patients
alone without any supervision. Being free give them a chance to
make dreams come true, but they are confronted with a reality
and environment, which is very different in one way or another.
From the moment of getting out of the fences, they are
conflicted with the people that call themselves free. Gradually
this conflict roughens and with it degenerates the meaning of

cruel, loosing their sympathy, dehumanizing and manifesting
freedom by denying it to the others?a strange kind of freedom.
The film is a metaphor of freedomand postwar people; those who
suspiciously observed everything and the others who need only a
bit of this freedom. Three persons, let them call mental
patients, wish to meet people, to love each other, to make love,
travel by train, smoke? They meet obstacles in fulfilling these
very human needs. While some people make fun of them, the others
suspect that their village might become insane by ?their
insanity?. The free space of these characters becomes narrower
while their desire faints. Ultimately, they don?t get
understood, but they get abused and chased all the time with no
