The Forgiveness of Blood
"An immersive look at the power of archaic traditions to sabotage a transitioning culture." (Jeannette Catsoulis, NPR)
When Nik’s father and uncle become involved in a dispute with a murderous end, a centuries old-code of law entitles the dead man’s family to retribution. With his uncle in jail and his father on the run, the internet savvy teenager becomes the prime target confining him to his home and leaving the survival of the family on the shoulders of his 14-year-old sister Rudina. Filmmaker Joshuan Marston's quietly tense follow up to Maria Full of Grace is bolstered by strong performances and a captivating story.
Joshua Marston. 2010. 108 m. NR. USA, Albanian. IFC Films.2:40 PM 5:05 PM 7:25 PM
