Polish film has long enjoyed an outstanding reputation but its best known protagonists tended to be male. For this year’s festival we have chosen films which showcase the important contribution to Polish film made by female Directors, Cinematographers and Actors.

Poland 2011 | 138 mins | Cert: 15 | Director: Agnieszka Holland

Leopold Socha, a sewer worker and petty thief in Nazi-occupied Poland, encounters Jewish people trying to escape the liquidation of the ghetto. He hides them for money in the labyrinth of the town’s sewers beneath the bustling activity of the city above. The film, based on a true story, is also an extraordinary story of survival as men, women and children all try to outwit certain death during 14 months of every increasing and intense danger.
