The Craft of Film: Body (15*) + ScreenTalk with Producer/Director Malgorzata Szumowska


27 February 2017
Cinema 2
Janusz is a weary coroner who faces the strangest forms of death every day. His daughter Olga is deeply unhappy and bulimic and Anna, her therapist, uses all kinds of alternative therapeutic methods, including communicating with the dead.

These are the are the superbly acted characters whose stories and viewpoints director-producer Malgozarta Szumowska subtly intertwines, bringing great lightness, tenderness and a great sense of the absurd to this black humoured, yet sympathetic reflection on mourning and loss set in contemporary Warsaw.

We're delighted to be joined by director-producer Malgozarta Szumowska for a talk after the screening, hosted by Rebecca O'Brien.
