June 29, 19:30, Koska Bar, (Dobračina 59) 

Vera is a middle-aged sign language interpreter, who leads a well-structured life: a wife to a renowned judge, a supportive mother, and a caring grandmother. Her serenity is disrupted by her husband’s unexpected suicide followed by an unwelcome, menacing parade of relatives who claim to have ownership over their village family house.  When the tendrils of an underworld scheme begin to surface, Vera’s world will face danger and seem ready to collapse. Fear and mistrust will force Vera to take the family’s fate into her own hands. Steeped into an ominous atmosphere, Vera Dreams of the Sea is an intimate yet universal portrait of a woman, who must face the raw reality of going against the deeply seated gender issues that prevail in our times.

Kaltrina Krasniqi, an acclaimed film director hailing from Kosovo, is also a seasoned media professional with expertise spanning film, television, and electronic publishing. She stands as one of the founders of the Oral History Initiative Kosovo, an online platform dedicated to recording and sharing the personal narratives of individuals from diverse walks of life.

Krasniqi completed her directing studies at the University of Pristina and obtained her master’s degree from the Kosovo Institute for Journalism and Communications in 2011. Furthering her professional growth, she pursued studies focused on directing at the University of California.
