MASSACHUSETTS PREMIERE. This searing drama set in the summer of 1943 in provincial Poland under German occupation follows two teenage boys. Polish railway worker Romek scavenges the train tracks for goods, immune to the fate of the human cargo passing by, while Guido, a Jazz-loving German military policeman, becomes more ruthless by the day. Romantic preoccupations prove fateful when they encounter a Polish country girl and a young Jewish woman escapee. With his award-winning script and arresting cinemagraphic visual style, Polish director Michal Rogalski exposes the brutality of war and the corrosive power of antisemitism. Winner Best Script, Montreal World Film Festival; Best Polish Film, CameraImage; Best Cinematography & Best Supporting Actress, Gdynia Film Festival.
