Performing Identity: The Balkan Aromanians
26.10.2018The project questioned the problem of "identity" by conducting a field research in the Aromanian communities from Greece (Veria, Palaiomanina) and Romania (Cogealac), taking the form of three short documentaries that state the situation of Aromanian minorities from the Balkans. The aim was to specify experientially extant differences between the identity provided by national citizenship and the one provided by community allegiance.
