“March Almonds”, dir. Radosław Piwowarski, Poland 1989 – PL, subtitles: EN
Introduction: Dr. Joanna Preizner
This screening is part of the series “(In)separable. Difficult Subjects in Polish-Jewish Relations”.
Spring 1968, a small town somewhere in Lower Silesia. High school graduates from the local high school organize parties, fall in love, play hookey, cheat on tests, and – in spite of the grayness and absurdities of the Polish People’s Republic – are happy, young and full of life. Suddenly, their existence is brutally shattered by the events of March 1968, which forces them to take a side on the political dispute, destroying friendships and resulting in difficult goodbyes.
