BODY (Ciało)

Małgorzata  Szumowska, 2015 | 90 minutes

Body centres around Attorney Janusz Koprowicz (Janusz Gajos) worried about his daughter Olga (Justyna Suwala) and her battle with anorexia. Olga is sent to unconventional therapist Anna (Maja Ostaszewska) to help her with her issues as well as the recent death of Olga’s mother. The film was warmly received at several festivals, including a Golden Lion at the 2015 Polish Film Festival and a Silver Bear at the 2016 Berlin International Film Festival. The film’s dynamic editing also won recognition for the editor Jacek Drosio at the 2015 European Film Awards.

Presented with English subtitles.
