With Anna Zamecka in person
Dir. Anna Zamecka. Poland. 2016, 72 mins. DCP. In Polish with English subtitles. Living amid domestic instability and teenaged volatility, a sister and brother play out their lives on camera. At fourteen, Ola is already functioning as the woman of the house, cooking and cleaning for her lethargic father and helping her energetic autistic brother, Nikodem, prepare for first communion. Throughout, she longs for her mother, whose absence is never explained, yet always deeply felt. Anna Zamecka’s debut is a quiet marvel, gazing with both affection and sobriety at a family trying to keep it together, and offering one of the most complex cinematic portraits of young womanhood in recent memory. The latest in the storied tradition of Polish hybrid filmmaking, Communion is nominated for the 2017 Cinema Eye Spotlight Award. New York premiere.
