For ten years now, the KOSMA radio network is the only thing connecting highly isolated Serbian communities in Kosovo. In this place laden with rich and vivid history and tradition, the radio voices bear witness to everyday life, human connections, significant events and ever-present hope.

JURY’S STATEMENT – Beyond the politically correct discourses, the documentary seduces for the originality of the story and the way of telling it. It stands for the originality through which it transmits, thanks to images, the vitality of a media using sound as the only tool gathering people in a strongly “medialized” world. Radio connects people. Kosma radio, more than television, becomes thus a means to express a breath of  freedom and  remarkable identities,  everything reported lively and lightly. The rhythm of editing is stressed and emphasized by the music. It is a huge expression of the Slavic roots that translates the pain of a minority.
