"March '68" (Promotional still)

In this gripping love story set against the volatile backdrop of late-1960s Communist Warsaw, Hania, a vivacious theater student, and Janek, a charming student and budding photographer, fall deeply in love. As the government crackdown on protesting students escalates, Hania undergoes a political awakening, which includes acknowledging that her fellow Jewish citizens are being persecuted in a series of antisemitic purges conducted in response to the hate-fueled rhetoric of Poland’s leader, Władysław Gomułka. Unsure if the political winds will abate or escalate, her family weighs emigration. Hania wants to stay with Janek, but things spiral out of control, leading to a powerful climax set during the infamous events of March 1968. Warsaw-born director Krzysztof Lang drew inspiration from his own life in making this passionate and suspenseful film that lies at the collision of history and romance.

Director: Krzysztof Lang, Poland, 2022, 122 minutes, Polish with English subtitles.
