What “Zana” offers is a small window into life-shattering, long-term effects of war. I would want the audience to come out with a slightly greater understanding of it.

Antoneta Kastrati was born in Zahaq, Kosovo. She holds a master's degree in journalism from the Kosovo Institute of Journalism and Communication, and attended the American Film Institute Directing Workshop for Women. She has directed the short documentaries SEEKING MAGIC (2008) and SHE COMES IN SPRING (2013). ZANA (2019) is her feature debut and it world premiered at TIFF in the Discovery Section. She is one of ten selected women directors that were chosen to be part of a special focus for the European Film Promotion’s EUROPE! VOICES OF WOMEN IN FILM, to be presented at Sydney FF 2020.
