• The Forgiveness of Blood is set in a place that will be unfamiliar to most viewers. American director Joshua Marston (Maria Full of Grace) traveled to an isolated, mountainous area in northern Albania to film this tale of a strange and real phenomenon: ancient tribal blood feuds that persist to this day, and the young people caught between that archaic reality and the modern world technology gives them access to. In this clip from an interview included in the Criterion release of The Forgiveness of Blood, producer Paul Mezey sets the scene for us, introducing a place where motorcycles and horse-drawn carriages use the same streets.
