Winner of the Best Director award at the 2018 Cannes Film Festival, Pawel Pawlikowski is back with Cold War, a decade-spanning romance that finds a star-crossed couple separating and reuniting throughout the years.

The film starts in 1949 Poland, where we meet Wiktor as he’s scouting the Polish countryside to put together a folk ensemble. There, he meets the fiery Zula, and is instantly drawn in by her star potential. The two start an impassioned affair, but a variety of factors – not least of which are the turbulent time period and their ill-suited pairing – will both keep them apart and drive them head-on towards each other.

Replete with sumptuous black and white cinematography and a wonderful soundtrack that flips between Polish folk music to jazz to rock ‘n’ roll, Cold War is a breathtaking feast for the senses and a punch to the gut for the soul.
