Heroinat is a short documentary film that comments on the erection of a problematic monument dedicated to women, which was uncovered on 12th of June 2015 in Prishtina, Kosovo. In the film, the thoughts on the monument are exchanged through montage of interview with a politician who supported the project, the written documents of the artist’s statements on the artistic aspect of the monument and the thoughts of students, artists, theoreticians and activists from Prishtina, that are questioning the idea and aesthetics of such monument.
