SWORN VIRGIN

DIRECTOR: Laura Bispuri - ALBANIA

A memorable telling of a fascinating and little-known Albanian custom, Sworn Virgin features a remarkable performance by Alba Rohrwacher as a woman who lives her life as a man. While still a girl, Hana decides to escape fate as a wife and servant in the mountains. She takes an oath of eternal virginity, which gives women the chance to pick up a rifle and live free as a man. For everybody in the village Hana becomes Mark, a ‘sworn virgin’. But as years of solitude pass, Mark begins to question his choice and sets out on a journey of discovery, exchanging Albania for Italy, past for present, masculine for feminine. New Director Prize, San Francisco International Film Festival. In Albanian and Italian with English subtitles. (90 mins.)



Interests: New Directors.
