Film Fest Gent - Babai

Visar Morina's feature film debut tells the dramatic story of a young Kosovar boy called Nori, who is determined to follow his father to Germany in the early 1990s. 'Babai', which is filmed from the perspective of the boy, "shows restraint and confidence in its depiction of the larger immigration theme and in how it explores the complex relation- ship between a father and son who are in an impossible situation."
