Vera Dreams of the Sea
Kaltrina Krasniqi, Kosovo, North Macedonia, Albania 2021, 87 Min., OV with English subs, DCP

Chosen by Lumbardhi Cinema (Kosovo)

Vera’s serene everyday life is disrupted by her husband's unexpected suicide, followed by an unwelcome, menacing parade of relatives who claim ownership of their village house. When the tendrils of an underworld scheme begin to surface, Vera’s world faces danger and appears on the verge of collapse. Fear and mistrust force Vera to take the family’s fate into her own hands. Steeped in an ominous atmosphere, Vera Dreams of the Sea is an intimate yet universal portrait of a woman who has to face the reality of going against the deeply-seated gender issues that still engross our times. (LC)

“Vera Dreams of the Sea is one of the most acclaimed and timely examples of the mainly women-led New Wave of Kosovar Cinema. Not engaged with the war, but rather the social, economic and cultural context in its aftermath, through Vera’s experience the film presents a struggle that is simultaneously local and relatable to the experiences of women across the world.”– Lumbardhi Cinema
