Long Synopsis

Train of Freedom is a feature documentary shot entirely on the railway system of Kosovo. Since 1874, the train has traveled amazing journeys. At its peak, it transported passengers in luxury cabins in trips that stretched from Greece to Germany. During the war, dark times made their mark when nearly one million Albanians were driven away by Serbian forces who ran a campaign of ethnic cleansing, many of which were forced into packed train cars and taken to the border with Macedonia.

Today, the train aims to reconcile and integrate the different ethnic groups that were affected by the war. It is one of the very few places in Kosovo where Albanians, Serbs, Gypsie Romas and Ashkalis share a common place. Meet the people, hear their stories and learn first hand the hopes and challenges of this new nation.
