"The Forgiveness of Blood" Movie Screening
Wednesday, April 17, 2013
6:00 PM-8:30 PM
Celebrate World Fusion Fest!
Join us for a FREE screening of "The Forgiveness of Blood", a powerful, dramatic story of an Albanian family caught up in a blood feud.
In the movie, Nik is a carefree teenager in a small town with a crush on the school beauty and ambitions to start his own internet café. His world is suddenly up-ended when his father and uncle become entangled in a land dispute that leaves a fellow villager murdered. According to a centuries-old code of law, this entitles the dead man's family to take the life of a male from Nik's family as retribution. His uncle in jail and his father in hiding, Nik is the prime target and confined to the home while his younger sister Rudina is forced to leave school and take over their father's business. -- (C) IFC
After the screening we will be holding a discussion of the movie and the implications of these blood feuds in modern Albanian society.
