– is the title of a recent publication by NISI MASA - European network of young cinema including a highly interesting collection of articles and reviews about Balkan cinemas.

The book is based on a youth seminar which was organised by NISI MASA, together with its Bulgarian member Art Group Haide, in Blagoevgrad, South-West Bulgaria, in March 2006.

Supported by the Council of Europe and the Fondation de France, this meeting gathered young participants from 8 Balkan countries: Albania, Bulgaria, Croatia, Greece, Kosovo, Macedonia, Serbia and Romania, plus guests from other European countries and local audience. Directors and film critics coming from the Balkans and various parts of Europe (e.g: Ron Holloway) were invited for film discussions.
After the seminar, participants and members of NISI MASA wrote the texts that are now compiled in this 89-page book made up of two main sections: Thematic approaches (e.g: ‘‘Kitch and black humour’’) and National cinemas. This second section is divided into chapters on Bulgaria, Romania, Croatia, Bosnia & Herzegovina, Serbia, Kosovo and Turkey.
The book also includes reviews of recently released films from the Balkans, such as 12:08 East of Bucharest by Corneliu Poromboiu (Romania, 2007), Go West by Ahmed Imamovic (Bosnia & Herzegovina, 2005), Kukumi by Isa Qosja (Kosovo, 2005), and many more...
