My Friend the Polish Girl (tbc)
Cast. Aneta Piotrowska, Danusia Samal, Gareth Lawrence.
INTRO AND Q&A WITH FILM DIRECTORS ON FRIDAY 31 MAY
Katie, a young American documentary maker, casts a Polish woman as protagonist in her film about the life of migrants in London after the Brexit referendum. Her only instruction as director to Alicja is, "Act as if I’m not here." This documentary soon becomes the report of a questionable game in which the two women challenge each other. In a powerful and fresh visual language that combines cinéma vérité with drawn animation and style elements from vlogs, this convincing feature debut provides a reflection on the rapacious relationship between filmmaker, subject and spectator.
Plymouth Arts Cinema would like to thank BFI FAN National Lottery for their funding support for the Q&A event.
