The Constitution — December 15, 2019

On Sunday, December 15, 2019, at 10:00 a.m., Cinema Art Bethesda will present the Croatian film, The Constitution. The film is 93 minutes long and in Croatian with English subtitles. It was released in 2016 and was the winner of 8 international awards including Best Film from the Montreal World Film Festival.


Four very different people live in the same building but avoid each other because of differences in how they live their lives, what they believe in, and where they come from. They would probably never exchange a word, but misfortune pushes them towards each other. Their lives entangle in ways that profoundly challenge deep-held beliefs and prejudices surrounding material status, sexual orientation, nationality and religion.

Slowly, and even painfully, they begin to open up to each other and recognize the essential humanity each of them possesses.
