COLD WAR

MON, FEB 11,  2019  at GALAXY .    4, 6:30 & 9 pm

Based loosely on the story of the director's parents,  the film takes us on their tragic, romantic journey set against the backdrop of the 1950s Cold War in Poland. Two people of differing backgrounds and temperaments begin an almost impossible romance. They meet when Wiktor, a musical director,  is auditioning folk musicians for a state-sponsored cultural project in Poland.  Shot in black and white and using striking choral, classical and jazz music the film takes us on a journey of the human heart.
