Amnesty (Amnistia)

83mins | 2012 | ForeignTV14
A new national law in Albania allowing conjugal visits for inmates brings together a man and a woman seeing their incarcerated spouses. Elsa's contact with her husband at the prison is part of a routine that includes child rearing, searching for a job and placating with her father-in-law; Spetim is a quiet man visiting his imprisoned wife under equally passionless circumstances. They gradually find in each other the sympathy and companionship that is missing from their lives, but a prisoner amnesty program soon threatens their fragile bond. A closely observed, sensual and contemplative drama of subtle-yet-profound social transformation, AMNESTY (AMNISTIA) is presented in Albanian with English subtitles. This film is an official selection of the prestigious, award-winning Global Lens Collection presented by the Global Film Initiative.
