Today's Tribeca selection for #WomensHistoryMonth is another Nora Ephron Prize winner, this time from an Italian director who we cannot wait to see expand her cinematic vision in more and more projects. In Laura Bispuri's bold, soulful debut SWORN VIRGIN (2015), the chameleonic Alba Rohrwacher stuns as an Albanian woman struggling with a shifting sense of gender after living as a man for fourteen years, in accordance with an old Kanun law that allows women to change their gender and escape their destiny as wife and servant, albeit at an ultimate personal price. Bispuri's deeply meditative drama deserves a much larger audience. Find a way to experience it.
