Storyline

In the past few years, American actress Eliza Dushku, who is of mixed Danish and Albanian ancestry, has become passionately interested in and connected to the country of her father's ancestors. In Dear Albania, Eliza and her brother Nate travel to Albania where they explore 15 unique cities throughout the country. They discover Albania's present, its past and hear about its hopes for the future. For the siblings, the voyage to their ancestral home becomes a cultural, historical and personal discovery. Dear Albania tells two stories: the journey of Albania through centuries of oppression, conquest, and civil strife to triumph over Communism and its emergence as a vibrant modern state; and the journey of one family, the Dushkus. Written by Deni Hoxha

Boring, self indulgent
4 February 2018 | by plon31See all my reviews

According to this "Documentary" Albania is a fantasy land of milk and honey with an abundance of everything! And the people are amazingly happy and content and sing,dance drink and eat all day. Wow! Miss Dushku also finds time in her hectic schedule of self indulgence for an "impromptu" photo shoot in a bikini. Very cultural indeed. More like shameless self promotion mixed with historical inaccuracies and political propaganda. Nowhere does this B grade Hollywood celebrity talk about the poverty, corruption, crime, ethnic hatred or fleeing refugees.

Its easy to see and find the beauty in everything when you're a pretentious celebrity with lots money, VIP connections and an entourage of butt kissers.
