For decades, the name of Enver Hoxha (1908-1985) aligned itself with terror in the minds of Albanian citizens. A psychopathic ruler whose calling card involved permanently separating family members from one another and incarcerating nationals for marrying non-indigenes, Hoxha cast a dark and oppressive shadow over the nation. Adela Peeva's harrowing documentary Razvod Po Albanski explores Hoxha's legacy by relaying the individual accounts of children estranged from their families via the leader's doings, and the testimonies of ex-convicts interrogated and imprisoned for years on end thanks to Hoxha.
