Directed by Academy Award-winning filmmaker Asif Kapadia (Senna, Amy) ALI & NINO tells the epic, heartfelt love story of two star-crossed lovers. Set in 1914 at the beginning of the war, Ali (Adam Bakri) is an educated young Muslim noble living in Baku, in the bustling capital of Azerbaijan. Nino (María Valverde) is a Christian girl whose regal family hails from Georgia. Facing all odds against them, Ali proposes marriage to Nino despite familial objections, religious divides and the war, all of which threaten to keep them apart. Based on the 1937 novel, Kapadia captures the beautiful, sweeping Azerbaijan landscape, telling an enduring love story for the ages.
