POLAND’S SUBMISSION FOR BEST INTERNATIONAL FEATURE FILM • 2022 ACADEMY AWARDS®
Poland, 1983. The country is shaken by the case of Grzegorz Przemyk – a high school student beaten to death by militia.

The oppressive regime used its whole apparatus – the secret service, militia, the media and the courts – to squeeze Jurek and other people close to the case, including his parents and Przemyk’s mother, Barbara. In Polish with English subtitles. Director Jan P. Matuszyński (Poland 2021) 160 min.
