REXHEP, WHAT KILLED THE ARCHITECT
Rexhep - Çka e vrau arkitektin
The filmmaker follows the life and work of architect and urbanist Rexhep Luci, and the story of Prishtina, the city he loved and where his murder is still unsolved for over 20 years. The documentary follows his personal and professional relationship with the city, from his dedication to urban growth during the Yugoslav period to his determination to prevent illegal construction in the post-war period. His niece, Besa, leads us through his life and Prishtina’s development through intimate conversations with family and Rexhep’s former colleagues, while following an architectural intervention on the street that bears his name. The documentary explores what puts a halt to an architect.
