Kenedi Goes Back Home


Regie: Želimir Žilnik

Kinoprogramm 2 mit Regisseur Želimir Žilnik

Film 1: Die Arbeitslosen / The Unemployed / Nezaposleni ljudi Jugoslawien 1968, 13 Min.

Žilnik konfrontiert mehrere Arbeitslose mit einer Reihe von Fragen, die, zusammengeschnitten, ein universelles Bild der Arbeitslosigkeit abgeben. Vom sozialistischen Optimismus ist hier nichts zu spüren. Einige von ihnen gehen nach Deutschland um dort als „Gastarbeiter“ ihr Geld zu verdienen.

The film presents a series of portraits and situations people found themselves in after being made redundant during the time of economic reforms, which were supposed to establish market economy in Yugoslavia. In the interviews, people speak about their doubts and confusion, because they had been expecting socialism to give them more social security. They criticise the parasitic bureaucracy, they sign in to leave for Germany and work there, since Yugoslavia has signed an agreement on taking over workforce around that time.

Film 2: Kenedi Goes Back Home /Kenedi se vraća kući Serbia and Montenegro 2003, 75 Min.

Kenedi Goes Back Home ist der erste Teil einer Trilogie über und mit dem jungen Rom Kenedi Hasani. Mit seiner Familie in den 90er Jahren vor den Jugoslawienkriegen nach Deutschland geflohen, wurde er 2002 nach Serbien abgeschoben. Am Belgrader Flughafen trifft Kenedi auf weitere aus Deutschland kommende Menschen, die wie er im Transit leben, auf der Suche nach Freunden und Familie, nach einer Unterkunft und Orientierung. Basierend auf den Erfahrungen und Erzählungen der Darsteller werden neue Grenzziehungen und Ausschlussmechanismen in einem vereinigten Europa sichtbar.

This is a story of Yugoslavs who left the country in war and spent over ten years in Western Europe as refugees or in asylum. In the second half of the year 2002 European Union sent many of these people back to Serbia and Montenegro together with their families, believing that there were no more reasons for their stay. Procedures for their return were usually very strict. Families would be gathered during the night, transported to the airport and sent to Belgrade on the first flight. To make things more dramatic, the majority of children born in some of the Western European countries speak and write the other language better than the mother tongue. As they sold everything they owned when they were leaving the country, they are facing a situation where normal life is practically impossible.

Film follows two friends (Kenedi and Denis) and Ibinci family from Kostolac during the first couple of days after they were returned at the Belgrade airport. We see them trying to find accommodation, searching for friends and other family members. Kenedi goes to Kosovska Mitrovica where his family used to have a house, to which he now does not have access. The focus of the film is on the position of the Roma people as the most endangered part of the returned population.
