On this week’s archive edition we have a tale of a near impossible romance set against the backdrop of post-World War 2 Europe in Pavel Pawlikowski’s masterpiece Cold War.

Set in Poland, Berlin, Yugoslavia and Paris - Cold War depicts an unimaginable love story, that of young singer Zula played Joanna Kulig and struggling musician Wiktor played by Tomasz Kot. This is a breathtaking, beautifully shot film from the director who previously brought us the equally as stark and surprising Ida. We spoke to the lead actors about their roles in this Palm D’or winning film.


From the Archive sees us dig into our extensive contemporary and classical music and cinema podcast archive as we rediscover interviews and discussions with artists, with our long-standing producer and presenter, Ben Eshmade.
