  • Amnesty

    2011. Albania. Written and directed by Bujar Alimani. With Luli Bitri, Karafil Shena, Todi Llupi. A newly enacted law allowing prisoners conjugal visits sparks an unlikely friendship between two lonely people visiting their incarcerated spouses. Elsa’s contact with her husband is silent and dutiful; Shpetim, a gentle, soft-spoken man who visits the prison to see his wife, experiences equally passionless encounters. When an amnesty sets their spouses free, their fragile bond is threatened. Alimani’s quietly sensual, contemplative first feature takes a wonderfully personal approach to a profound social transformation. In Albanian; English subtitles. 83 min.

In the Film exhibition Global Lens, 2012
