The Return: A Documentary About Being Young and Jewish In Poland (dir. Adam Zucker, 2014, 63 mins)

How do you build your identity when your past has been stripped away? With no access to their heritage, four women are forging a new sense of self. In the country that was once the epicenter of the Jewish world, and now regarded as “the Jewish graveyard,” they are figuring out how to be Jewish in today’s Poland.

Wednesday

Zlota Street (dir. Tomasz Knittel, 2019, 84 mins)

Krzysztof and Ida are the live-in landlords of an old tenement in Warsaw, returned to Krzysztof’s family as its rightful Jewish heirs under the reprivatization process. The building is home to Afghan, Ukrainian, and Syrian residents and stands as a powerful microcosm of multiculturalism. Zlota Street is about contemporary Poland and searching for your place in the world, while challenging the history and politics of invasion and discrimination.

Thursday

Today, Tomorrow, Yesterday (dir. Krzysztof Kadłubowski, Diana Kadłubowska, 2019, 52 mins)

Grandmother, mother, and granddaughter: three generations, three women, three different worlds, all connected by the same story. The mother and grandmother have been living in conflict for many years. Granddaughter, Judyta, has returned to her family roots by becoming an orthodox Jew. Now a mother herself, she finds the strength to face the traumatic legacy of the Holocaust in her family and strives to bring her grandmother and her mother together. Will Judyta manage to unite the family?

Viewers should be aware that this film briefly includes archival images documenting the Holocaust, reenactments of violence and nudity. All films co-presented with the Polish Cultural Institute, New York.
