Two friends, a guitar virtuoso and a filmmaker, embark on a journey from Kosovo to Spain transcending time, space and politics of exclusion.

Sarabande started as a personal documentary on the classical music virtuoso Petrit Çeku who was about to record the Bach Cello Suites in Spain back in 2014. It then evolved into a road movie examining the notions of borders and illegality, about a journey of two friends traveling between the invented ideas of the Orient and Occident, past and future.
