The CF International Film Series educates and inspires through films that are culturally, historically and artistically important. We hope you will join us as we explore and enjoy our world though great cinema.
“Ali and Nino” is the story of a romance that crosses political, geographic and religious divides. Azerbaijan, 1918: though he is Muslim and she is Christian, the lovers defy their parents and marry. At first it appears that their all-consuming love will be enough to overcome the differences in their backgrounds. But their bond is soon put the test, first as she confronts what it means to be a westernized woman living in a traditionalist society, and then again when everything they know is turned upside down by the arrival of World War I. In Azerbaijani and Russian with English subtitles.
