TRAPPED BY LAW

As early as Žilnik’s KENEDI GOES BACK HOME, the collision between the arbitrariness of the EU’s closed-door logic and the inconceivable fates of Roma deported from certain ex-Yugoslavian republics had already entered into the consciousness of the documentary film world. In Sami Mustafa’s TRAPPED BY LAW it is no longer humour that predominates, but instead the sort of sheer madness that the protagonists, brothers Kefaet and Selami, are exposed to in Kosovo after their forced repatriation. Mustafa shows their odyssey, their youth, their hip-hop, their socialisation in the German rustbelt (Essen), just as he shows the cold shoulders of law and bureaucracy.
