At the outbreak of the Kosovo War, six year old Bini is only thinking about his most prized possession, a piece of candy. When suddenly he and his family are packed into a crowded truck and faced with life threatening obstacles, Bini learns that candy may not be the only thing of value he loses that day.
Born in Peja Kosovo in 1992, Erblin has been taking acting lessons since he was ten years old.

In 2010, him and his family moved to the United States. Erblin recently earned his B.A. from George Mason University where he studied film with a concentration in directing, and a minor in photography. In his two years at GMU, Erblin directed ten short films. His latest film “BINI” won the Jury Prize for Outstanding Local Film at DC Shorts Film Festival.
