Synopsis

"Women of Freedom" (2018), a documentary film directed by Lum Çitaku, is a testimony and a chronology of war, resistance and great sacrifice of Kosovo women as a crucial part of Albanians' movement for freedom and independence.
The movie is based on numerous stories by participants in women's political movement, especially the activities and organization of protests in protection of freedom and independence.
It covers fragments from critical moments of women's activities that culminated in massive protests during the years of armed struggle in Kosovo between 1997 - 1998, focused on the massive women protest - March for Drenica with the tag line "Bread for women and children of Drenica".
