Information

“I don’t know why my Dad let me go, especially when he knew how dangerous, how hard it was… I was too young, too weak to make this journey. I wouldn’t have sent me…He wouldn’t have sent me unless there was a reason.”

In 2002, after the end of the Kosovan War, Dritan is sent on the notoriously perilous journey across the Adriatic with a gang of people smugglers to a new life in Europe. He relies on his young wit and charm to make it to the UK.

How Not to Drown shares a story of endurance for a little kid who wasn’t safe anywhere in the world, performed by an ensemble cast starring Dritan Kastrati himself.
