After decades of dictatorship, Albania is at a turning point in its history. Yet, in the collective imagination, "Albania does not exist". Facing this lack of images, Alexander Schellow uses his technique of memory reconstruction through drawing, and explores various approaches: live action shooting, interviews, satellite images, voice over… And calls into question the criteria a civil society is grounded on, just when it is coming into existence.
