Synopsis by Clarke Fountain
In 1968, Horizonte Te Hapura, directed by Viktor Gjika, one of the pioneers of Albanian moviemaking, broke new ground. Its subject matter was contemporary, rather than being a historical piece or an action drama set among the partisans of World War II. In the story, a dockworker sees that a crane, a crucial piece of shipyard equipment, is being endangered by a violent storm, and despite considerable danger to himself works to save it.
