Two young students, Hania and Janek, meet and fall in love in the midst of social turmoil and Jewish discrimination in 1960’s Warsaw. While the young lovers are uninterested in politics, they find themselves unable to avoid it when Hania’s father and mother lose their jobs due to the anti-Semitic purge and are forced to emigrate. Hania does not want to leave Janek, and the couple soon participate in a protest rally at the university where they discover freedom comes at a high price.
WHY WE LIKE THIS FILM: A well made Polish love story drama set around the events of 1968 – a period where the government used current events to enact a policy of antisemitism. Great music sets the 1960’s vibe. Polish director Krzysztof Lang will be at the festival to present the film. Shown in partnership with the Austin Polish Society.
