Gérard Depardieu, the famous French actor is shooting a film in Gjirokastra.
Although the set has been kept out of the camera’s interest, it is known that Depardieu will star in Pristina-based director Arben Kastrati’s film “Milosevic and I”. The film, which is a Kosovo-French co-production, has also included other well-known actors such as Nathalie Boyer, Alessandra Martines and others.
The film brings events of 2003 that coincide with the post-war period in Kosovo. The story of the main character and his experience of the events permeate the film, conveying tragedy, comic scenes and the reality of a population living in the early days of freedom.
Mr Depardieu is expected to formally receive the ‘City Key’ of Gjirokastra at a ceremony which will take place during filming days.
