you need to add the video file as a video clip.
Menu: Project -> Add Clip

I did not use it for something serious, just a bit of playing with it,
but AFAIK the reason is simply that kdenlive lets you aggregate multiple clips
to create one final video out of that, e.g. a video clip added with a music clip etc.
To create the final video you need to render the kdenlive project to a target video format
