Italy-Switzerland-Germany-Albania-Kosovo, 2015, 1 hour 30 minutes, Albanian with English subtitles
This is the delicately observed, beautifully realized story of Hana who follows an old Albanian tradition and becomes a sworn virgin to escape from an arranged marriage. After ten years living as man in the hostile Albanian mountains a trip to Italy opens up the tantalizing, but also terrifying possibility of a new life. This features a subtle central performance that conveys the troubled nature of Hana/Mark’s existence and her growing sense of excitement as she relearns how to act as a woman. Sensitively exploring issues of gender identity, self-image and cultural expectations, this also delivers a touching hopeful portrait of tentative liberation.
