JOANNA


A member of the "Cinema of Moral Anxiety" movement in 1970s Polish cinema, veteran filmmaker Feliks Falk presents a riveting story of trust, hope and bravery. Joanna is an out-of-work piano teacher fighting to keep her spacious Warsaw apartment since her husband disappeared at the start of WWII. When she finds a 7-year-old Jewish girl, Róza, asleep in a church pew, she takes her home without hesitation and provides asylum from the prying Nazis. As Joanna and Róza grow closer and necessarily more isolated, Joanna is forced to make a difficult decision for both of their futures. Best Actress, 2011 Moscow Film Festival; Best Actress and Best Supporting Actress, 2011 Polish Film Awards.
