Writer and Director: Pawel Pawlikowski

Starring: Joanna Kulig, Tomasz Kot and Borys Szyc

This film, set in Poland and France during the Cold War from the late 1940s until the 1960s, tells the story of a musical director (Tomasz Kot) who discovers a young singer (Joanna Kulig), and follows their subsequent love story over the years. The film is loosely inspired by the lives of Pawlikowski’s parents.

He said “I dedicated it to my parents, because it’s somewhat inspired by their tempestuous relationship—they had [both] a great love and a great war. Their separations, betrayals, getting together again, moving countries, changing partners, getting together again—that story has always been in the back of my head, as a kind of a matrix of all love stories. So I knew I had to do it.”

Doors open 30 min. before screenings for Front Row and Sunday cinema.
