Korczak
Andrzej Wajda

O.V. Polish | st English

A sensitive tribute to the life and work of the physician who flouted Nazi rule to champion children’s rights, Korczak transcends the gravity of the situation to recount, with infinite restraint and a poignant sweetness, the crushing destiny of the 200 youngsters living in the doctor’s orphanage. 25 years on, the film’s heartbreaking epilogue is as vivid as ever.

Presented by the FONDATION LILIANA KOMOROWSKA POUR LES ARTS and the EMBASSY OF THE REPUBLIC OF POLAND IN OTTAWA
