Vera Dreams of The Sea (15)

Director: Kaltrina Krasniqi

Starring: Teuta Ajdini, Alketa Sylaj, Refet Abazi

Kosovo, 2021, 1 hour 27 minutes, Albanian with subtitles

After her husband’s unexpected suicide, a menacing parade of relatives appear who claim to have ownership over their village family house. As the tendrils of an underworld scheme begin to surface, Vera's world seems about to collapse. Steeped in an ominous atmosphere of fear and mistrust, this is an intimate probing character study of a supportive mother and caring grandmother forced to face the raw reality of her status as a woman. A memorable central performance illuminates this well-constructed and suspenseful drama.


“This nuanced, nervy story [is] as much a character portrait as it is a social critique.”  - Variety
