SELITA dramatically chronicles the efforts of activists and Roma residents who try to halt highway construction threatening to destroy their neighborhood in Tirana, Albania. Recorded over two and a half years, this documentary captures the often-heated confrontations between concerned citizens and powerful government forces. SELITA is a powerful reminder of the enormous personal cost and shady political compromises taking place in Albania, a country still in the midst of transition and social struggle.
