Different Ages, Different Voices: Polish Women in Film
Flying Blind (2013, 88’) by Katarzyna Klimkiewicz
A powerful story of a conflict between a British military engineer and a young Algerian man reveals the hidden racial and cultural tensions that are usually ignored in mainstream cinema. This honest, uncompromising melodrama touches upon a number of political and social issues that still define whom we are allowed to love and the price to pay for following one’s heart and passion.
The screening will be followed by a Q&A with the director.
