Vera Dreams of the Sea

By Kaltrina Krasniqi

Kaltrina Krasniqi signs the superb portrait of a woman and an essential piece of the cinematographic New Wave flourishing in Kosovo. Vera is a devoted wife, mother and grandmother who works as a sign language interpreter. When her husband commits suicide, her life changes dramatically: she feels the weight of the oppressive and threatening patriarchy on her shoulders more and more insistently. Will Vera give in to protect her family?
