Tributes - Retrospectives - Cinema on cinema
| 122 minutes | 2007
Wajda looks back on the Katyn massacre perpetrated by the Russian army in 1940 — an event that saw the murder of his father, an infantry captain. Through the eyes of three women, this lyrical yet deeply sombre memorial shines light on an atrocity that cost the lives of 14,000 Polish officers, intellectuals and students. Cinema as guardian of the collective memory.Presented by the FONDATION LILIANA KOMOROWSKA POUR LES ARTS and the EMBASSY OF THE REPUBLIC OF POLAND IN OTTAWA
