“Welcher bist du?”- the Premier of Swiss-Albanian production

By: Valon Xoxa    June 18, 2014

“Welcher bist du?” or “Which one are you?” is a highly anticipated movie by Valton Jakupi. The premier is set to take place on 22nd of June in Cinewil at 12:30 pm. The movie premier will have an organized cocktail for the audience where people will have the chance to taste Albanian cookies and sweet dishes.

The movie “Which one are you?” by Bujanovc born Valton Jakupi and producer Felix Baumgartner sheds light on the life of Albanians in Switzerland and breaks down the  pre-conceptions people have on immigrants. The movie captures a wide range of characters that one could encounter in a diaspora community and specifically focuses on the type of Albanians one meets in Switzerland.

Based on Mr. Jakupi, the movie is primarily done in German. However, there are bits and pieces where conversations are held on Albanian. The movie is set on the lives of two characters, the father and son and their views on life in the West and the struggles of living abroad. “I wanted to send a message through the movie – I wanted to show that the Albanian community in Switzerland is integrated and there are many Albanians working on careers that are not necessary blue color jobs”.

Valton Jakupi and Felix Baumgartner call on all the people who are talented actors to visit their offices. They are eager to work with young actors and help them reach their dreams. They will be working on a follow up project on integration and would love to include as many young people as possible!
