Tomka and his Friends

(1977, Albania, PG)

Tickets are available for this event. Online booking will close an hour before the event is due to start but tickets will be available to purchase at the venue.

When the Nazis occupy an Albanian village after the withdrawal of the Italian army, Tomka and his gang are furious – because the Germans set up camp on their football pitch. The local partisans recruit the boys to spy on the invaders and help to set an ambush. Who knew war could be this much fun? Albania’s greatest female director Xhanfise Keko spins a classic boys’ own adventure yarn, but in a style as raw and authentic as anything from the Italian neo-realists. Never before seen in the UK and freshly restored, this is a rare discovery.
