About this project

Thank you for visiting our page!  With production complete and over 20+ hours of footage in our hands, we need YOU to help pay for the editing and delivery of the finished product.  Our team is standing by and we are excited about launching this to an international audience.  Please join us in showcasing the best of Albania!

STORY:  In the splendour of the Northern Mediterranean, I visited my homeland of Albania to discover both the old and the new.  Alongside my brother Nate, photographer and my "Cheshire Cat" Fadil Berisha, my boyfriend Rick Fox, actor Blerim Destani, opera singer Inva Mula, dancer Tony Davolani, singer Aurela Gace, footballer Lorik Cana, opera singer Ermonela Jaho, artist Capitol T, and more, we blazed a trail from the capital city Tirana to the sexy beaches of the Albanian Riviera and the rugged villages of the Albanian Alps.  I was also fortunate to experience the hospitality of Albania's leaders: Prime Minister Sali Berisha, President Bamir Topi and Tirana Mayor Lulzim Basha and to hear their messages of hope for a beautiful country.

I experienced many Albanian customs; eating, dancing, exploring, balling, shopping, sporting, etc.  I got to know the people, politics and economics of a young democracy in an ancient land, as I uncovered the Albania of today.

It was eye-opening to discover how Albania lives in me, witnessing the pride of the country and receiving the key to Korce, the city of my family's origin, and my Albanian citizenship. 

I am hoping to reach as many people as possible, so please spread the word!  Faleminderit!  (Thank you!)

With Love,

Eliza
