The High Sun

Sunday, June 12, 2016, 2016

THE HIGH SUN shines a light on three love stories, set in three consecutive decades, in two neighboring Balkan villages with a long history of inter-ethnic hatred. Through these stories, Dalibor Matani? highlights how dangerous hatred towards “the other” can be. It is a film about the fragility-and intensity-of forbidden love.
