ANDRZEJ MUNK STUDIO PRESENTS:
Mercy (2012, 18’) by Eliza Subotowicz
The Princess and the Wall (2012, 14’) by Małgorzata Kozera
These two shorts by young, award-winning Polish directors working within the Andrzej Munk Studio focus on the tension between tradition and modernity that still defines much of contemporary Poland. Boldly confronting the issues of religious faith (in Mercy) and cultural influences that shape children’s dreams (The Princess and the Wall), both shorts present a complex view of Polish reality and the young women who try to find their place within it.
The screening will be followed by a Q&A with both directors, conducted by Sheila Skaff, film scholar from Columbia Univerity whose numerous publications include pioneering research on Polish film.
