The idea being alluded to in the title of “Sworn Virgin,” an introduction highlight by Italian author executive Laura Bispuri, has a place with the conventional society of Albania, where a portion of the film happens. In a rough, devastated world where ladies are dealt with as property, some escape their hard, sex decided destiny by guaranteeing the status of “sworn virgins” before twelve male older folks, after which they wear male attire and live as men.
They are then permitted to convey rifles, chase and take part in all special male exercises, with the exception of one. They are not permitted to engage in sexual relations with either sex. This custom evidently goes back no less than a few centuries and, however now passing on is out, is still rehearsed by a few ladies in Albania’s remote mountain towns.
