I like that this workshop is focused on human rights, LGBTQ+ rights, and equality. These are really important to me, and I really want people here in Albania to be more open about them. I think Tirana has a lot of untold stories but people are afraid to come out and talk about them. They are scared of being judged, and others being mean towards them.
I’m making a movie that is anti-bullying. It can seen in depression, anxiety, everything that you can think of. How a small word can affect a person’s life and change it from the roots.
Storytelling can make a difference, because people will start seeking help and start getting better. Not only for other people but also for themselves – they’ll begin to accept themselves.
