In his barbershop, Bashkim tinkers with hair and hearts. He shares his philosophy of life with his customers, whom he treats like guests and reveals his next project: shooting a film. As director and protagonist he is transfigured from being a marginal character to having the key role in an aesthetic exploration of the big concepts in life.
Bashkimi United premiered at Kurzfilmtage Winterthur 2018. The film was screened at many international festivals (DokuFest, KO:SH Filmfest, FIFF, Kino Kosova, Eastern Neighbour Filmfestival) and won numerous awards in Switzerland.
