‘The legendary dog’ talks about a fragment from the life of Ulay, a famous conceptual artist. In fact the film is about a journey that he and his partner -renowned artist Marina Abramovic conduct in Kosovo in 1977. Their journey is crowned with a performance which takes place inside the ironclad borders between then the-Yugoslavia (Kosovo) and Albania’s socialist dictatorship, with movements between the two states being impossible, that is movement of the same people – of the Albanian living in two states. But the visit he and his partner make dose not end with only performance from Ulay - dubbed Quakovich explores Albania- they also get new family member , Alba. The unique dog-breed of Kosovo, the Sharri dog (know as Illyrian shepherd) – which at the time used to be considered national asses- spends 14 years with the famous conceptual art couple, and the includes five years in their famous van, which has now been turned into a work of art. Ulay, Marina Abramovic and Alba live perfectly well together, but at some point in time, life parts them in opposite directions.

It’s a documentary on pollution and extreme conditions in Albania, which call upon to reflect all together the way how we can find a solution. Besides the government that must undertake initiatives, average people are also responsible to not throw the trash in the river and solve the problem, because despite the pollution of the river, the waste affects also the livestock and food.”
