KENEDI GOES BACK HOME

 UNDER THE SAME SKY. Films for people who defy labels

Serbia, 2003, 78’
Director: Želimir Žilnik

This film is about people who emigrated to European countries during the war
years of the nineties. They have lived there for years, had children, and took
them to schools. In 2002 they were in the “process of readmission” – in a severe
and inhumane police action they were collected from work, from schools and their
homes and returned to Serbia.
This is the story of 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.
