Director: Pawel Pawlikowski • Starring: Joanna Kulig, Tomasz Kot and Borys Szyc.
As the Cold War deepens in post-war Poland, a torrid romance develops between Wiktor, a composer, and Zula, a singer and dancer. Wiktor discovers her while auditioning local girls for a folk troupe, falling in love with her almost instantly and ignoring his assistant’s warning that Zula “apparently killed her father”. She becomes a star, though also a tool of the state propaganda machine…
This is another gem of rare visual and musical beauty from Pawlikowski, director of the Academy Award winning Ida.
With two showings at 2.30pm and 7.30pm.
