Bolla

Pajtim Statovci, David Hackston

It is April, 1995.


Kosovo is a country on the cusp of a dreadful war. Arsim is twenty-two, newly married, cautious - an Albanian trying to keep his head down and finish his studies in an atmosphere of creeping threat. Until he encounters Milos, a Serb, and begins a life in secret.

Bolla is the story of what happens when passion and history collide - when a relationship, already forbidden and laced with danger, is ripped apart by war and migration, separated by nations and fate.

What happens when you are forced to live a life that is not yours, so far from your desires?

Can the human remain?

‘Devastating in the most beautiful ways … you are in the hands of an absolute artist.’ - Torrey Peters, author of Detransition, Baby
