Directed by Isa Qosja
School teacher Lushe gives an interview detailing rape during the war in Kosovo and sets off events that reveal tensions and secrets locked in traditional village life. Kosovo's 2015 submission for the Academy Award.
"Set in a traditional Kosovar village in 2000, a year after the war with Serbia, Isa Qosja's "Three Windows and a Hanging" is a critical look at a patriarchal culture threatened by the knowledge that the enemy violated their women. When a local femme anonymously reveals to an international journalist that she and others were raped, the fallout from this once-repressed secret threatens to tear apart the fabric of village life in this finely written and directed drama. Kosovo's choice of foreign-language Oscar entry signals a coming to terms with something previously considered too shameful to discuss; further fest play beckons." Variety
