VICE Film “Ispod betona” (Albania: Beneath the Concrete)

In Albania, there are on average 24 bunkers per square kilometer—that is roughly one for every four inhabitants. The bunkers, built during the 40 years of communist rule, were used as a propaganda tool, leveraging the fear of war to hold power and stamp out dissent. VICE Serbia went to Albania to meet a notorious Albanian tattoo artist who’s set up shop in one of these leftover and forgotten concrete bunkers.

Novi film iz produkcije Vice Srbija istražuje sudbinu 750.000 bunkera koji su tokom vladavine Envera Hodže sagrađeni širom tada komunističke Albanije. Procenjuje se da na svakom kvadratnom kilometru Albanije postoji neverovatnih 24 bunkera. U jednom od njih autorka filma Katarina Petrović pronašla je umetnika, bivšeg zatvorenika u Americi, koji je bunker u kom se igrao kao dečak, pretvorio u studio za tetoviranje.
