Location: Redstone Theater
Dir. Pawel Lozinski. Poland. 2016, 80 mins. DCP. In Polish with English subtitles. Polish filmmaker Pawel Lozinski’s unwaveringly intimate work documents a triangular psychotherapeutic encounter between a daughter, Hania; a mother, Ewa; and a therapist, Bogdan. Focused on one face at a time, mining every utterance for revelation, and every expression for what lurks behind the words, Lozinski witnesses resistance and progress, trauma and enduring love.
Preceded by Three Songs for Benazir
