The screening of SWORN VIRGIN is sold-out. But there will be free tickets at the door. Come early enough to secure your ticket!
Hana Doda, still a girl, escapes from her destiny of being a wife and a servant, a future imposed on women in remote village life in Albania. With the help of her uncle’s guidance, Hana appeals to the old Kanun traditional law and takes an oath of eternal virginity for the chance to bear a rifle and live free as men. For the villagers, Hana becomes Mark, a “sworn virgin”.But something restless stirs under these men’s clothes. Years later, the immense Albanian mountains and her choice now seem like a prison. Mark decides to set out on a journey, too long put off. He travels to Italy, crossing borders into many different worlds: Albania and Italy, past and present, masculine and feminine.
