Prisoners of Kanun / Prisioneros del Kanun

Spain, 2013, Colour, 30 min

The centuries-old custom of blood feuds has started blighting lives in Albania since the collapse of communism, particularly in the mountains of north, where many families are living locked down in their houses in fear of blood vengeance. The ancestral code of “Kanun”, which has governed rural life in Albania for five centuries of foreign occupation, include the right to murder to avenge an earlier killing: “blood must be paid with blood”.
