Press on Chromium

“To his credit, Bujar Alimani doesn’t simply parade the easy cultural clichés of, say, rifle-wielding, blood-feuding clansmen or worn icons of Albania’s communist legacy. Just like in Amnesty, Chromium charts a young generation’s struggle to grow up in a country on the cusp of social change…” HOLLYWOOD REPORTER
