13 October / 6pm / The Box / £4/£3
Director: Isa Qosja, Kosovo, Germany, 2014, 94 mins
Beautifully shot by Gökhan Tiryaki (cinematographer to Palme d’Or winner Nuri Bilge Ceylan) and with a hint of well-placed humour, this highly acclaimed film by Kosovar director Isa Qosja, deals with the sensitive topic of rape while exposing the oppressive traditional patriarchal culture of the Balkans. Set in a Kosovo village after the end of the war in the late 1990s, it focuses on four women and their different ways of dealing with their common traumatic past. Chilling and insightful, the film offers a stinging critique of male dominating culture while avoiding nationalistic traps.
Part of Contemporary Balkan Cinema: Cultural Identity and Memory, a season of recent films from Kosovo, Bulgaria and Croatia offering a fresh outlook on contemporary culture in the Balkans and its relationship with the past. Each screening will be introduced by Dr Lydia Papadimitriou, Reader in Film Studies at Liverpool John Moores University, and followed by a discussion with the audience. Financially supported by Film Studies at Liverpool John Moores University.
