ITALIAN PREMIERE

Displaced tells the story of a post-war Kosovo ping pong club, the ‘Lidhja e Prizrenit’ (League of Prizren) and its journey to the present days, through the life of its two main protagonists and the coach of the club. The film takes the form of docu-fiction, for which we recreated actual events with real characters, combining real footage from the present. The ‘Ping Pong Federation’ was the first Kosovo sports federation to be internationally recognized after the end of the Kosovo War in the late 1990s.” (S. Karahoda)
In competition at the latest Cannes Film Festival.
