School teacher Lushe gives an interview detailing rape during the war in Kosovo and sets off events that reveal tensions and secrets locked in traditional village life.

“Set in a traditional Kosovar village in 2000, a year after the war with Serbia, Isa Qosja’s “Three Windows and a Hanging” is a critical look at a patriarchal culture threatened by the knowledge that the enemy violated their women. When a local femme anonymously reveals to an international journalist that she and others were raped, the fallout from this once-repressed secret threatens to tear apart the fabric of village life in this finely written and directed drama.” Variety

Kosovo’s first ever submission for the Academy Award (2015).
