Best of Fest! Coming soon to the Oriental Theatre!
The latest from Oscar-winning director Pawel Pawlikowski (Ida) is an impossible love story set in in the ruins of post-war Poland. From completely different backgrounds and woefully mismatched, Wiktor and Zula nevertheless find themselves inextricably linked to one another. Filming the lifespan of their relationship (from enchanted first meeting to their marriage's aching denouement) in crisp black-and-white with a boxy 4:3 aspect ratio (visually ensuring this couple is never far away from one another), Cold War is a singular expression from a master filmmaker.
