MY FRIEND THE POLISH GIRL

Sexy, unemployed, Eastern Europe. Any further questions? In London, rich kid Katie resolves to make a film about desperate Alicja from Poland, who has been trying for years to make a go of it in England as an actress, without success. Originally the film was supposed to be about Brexit and the referendum’s consequences for Alicja’s British existence, but the dynamic between the two unequal women quickly becomes more and more sinister.This work by directorial duo Ewa Banaszkiewicz and Mateusz Dymek revolves around fundamental ethical questions related to films and the privileged position of those who make them. What is reality? How far will people go for a story? And what do we want to see anyways?
