Cold War – Stroud Film Festival

 

Sunday March 17th

Doors 7pm for 7.30 start

Feature  Paweł Pawlikowski follows his Oscar-winning ‘Ida’ with the stunning ‘Cold War’, an epic romance set against the backdrop of Europe after World War II. In the ruins of post-war Poland, Wiktor (Tomasz Kot) and Zula (Joanna Kulig) fall in love. As performing musicians forced to play into the Soviet propaganda machine, they dream of escaping to the creative freedom of the West. Winner of the Best Director award at the Cannes Film Festival 2018, Pawlikowski melds the personal with the political to exquisite effect. Set to a soundtrack that takes you from the rustic folk songs of rural Poland to the sultry jazz of a Paris basement bar, it’s a wistful and dreamlike journey through a divided continent.
