Film Screening: Vera Dreams of the Sea, a film by Kaltrina Krasniqi

As part of Capital week, we are pleased to invite you to the screening of Vera Dreams of the Sea, a film by Kaltrina Krasniqi on the 21st of October from 19h at Kino Armata.



Vera is a middle-aged sign language interpreter, who leads a well-structured life: a wife to a renowned judge, a supportive mother, and a caring grandmother. Her serene life is disrupted by her husband’s suicide followed by an unwelcome, menacing parade of men who claim to have ownership over their village family house. When the tendrils of an underworld scheme begin to surface, Vera’s world will face danger and seem ready to collapse. Fear and mistrust will force Vera to take the family’s fate into her own hands. The film is an intimate yet universal portrait of a woman, who has to face the raw reality of going against the deep-seated gender issues of our times.
