This event is in the past.
The Anglo-Albanian Association in co-operation with SSEES UCL is pleased to invite you to the first showing in the UK of the pioneering Albanian film SkaNdal which will be screened in Room 347 at the School of Slavonic and Eastern European Studies, UCL, 16 Taviton St, London WC1H 0BW on Tuesday 22 March 2016 from 1800- 2000 . Drinks will be held afterwards.
SkaNdal is the first documentary film to be made in Albania about that country's emerging LGBT movement. It is the story of how this movement started in a very cautious and novel manner and how, despite the difficult environment, brought Tirana LGBT people together for the first time. You will meet brave and inspiring individuals whose rights are still insecure. The film's creators have produced a tribute to those people persecuted under communism, and to those still fearful today. The film's title is made up of two Albanian words SKA (non) NDAL(stop) representing this message. The abbreviation LGBT means Lesbian Gay Bisexual and Trans-gender.
This film is directed by two young Albanians Elton Baxhaku and Eriona Cami. These are the new film makers of the new post-1991 Albania with a strong civic message.
If you plan to attend this sensitively crafted and acclaimed film, please let us know as soon as possible as places are limited.
