WINNER OF 2021 festival jury award: best international narrative feature

Somewhere in Kosovo, in a small remote village, three young women see their dreams and ambitions stifled. In their quest for independence, they form a gang and engage in petty crime as they impatiently await their opportunity to go away to university and escape the boredom of their small-town life.

THE HILL WHERE LIONESSES ROAR is the first feature by French-Kosovar actress Luana Bajrami (PORTRAIT OF A LADY ON FIRE).
