Section: East of the West - Competition
Year: 2019

A diverse group of women live in a remote mountain location. The only male element in the house is nine-year-old Aga, the son of one of the women. Opening the East of the West competition, Lendita Zeqiraj’s debut authentically re-creates the vibrant world of her energetic female protagonists, in which the flow of stories, the sound of singing, and coarse humor cannot mask the dark undertone of their country’s wartime past and its enduring ethnic tensions.


Synopsis

A diverse group of women live in a remote mountain location. The only male element in the house is nine-year-old Aga, the son of one of the women. When something unexpected happens, it is Aga who is tasked with fixing the situation... Lendita Zeqiraj previously explored female society and generational differences in her internationally acclaimed short Fence. Opening the East of the West competition, Zeqiraj’s feature debut authentically re-creates the vibrant world of her energetic female protagonists, in which the flow of stories, the sound of singing, and the coarse jokes they tell cannot mask the dark and bitter undertone of their country’s wartime past and its enduring ethnic tensions.
