BROKEN APRIL – based on the novel by Albanian author Ismail Kadare.

Directed by Arthur Makaryan, adapted by Ned Moore.

Deep in the mountains, a young man is caught up in a blood feud that has plagued his family for generations. With one month to live, he must make an impossible choice: break the cycle to fight for love, or surrender to fate. Broken April explores the true cost of forgiveness in a world of animosity.

"I think the world of Broken April is one that American audiences don't often get to enter, which is in part what attracted us to the story in the first place."
