The film ‘Amnesty’ by Albanian director Bouyar Alimani has premiered at the Berlinale. Alimani has been living and working in Greece for the past twenty years.
‘Amnesty’ is his first film and also the first Albanian film in Berlinale’s history.
The story is about the life conditions of the two leading parts and brings them together at the end in a sensitive way.
Alimany studied at Tiranna’s School of Arts and always tried to work with Greek directors. As he puts it: “I have studied theater in Albania, but grew up artistically in Greece. And I am not being diplomatic. I have two home countries, honestly.”
