Polish films

Docudays UA International Human Rights Documentary Film Festival is held annually in the last week of March in Kyiv.

Traditionally viewings of Polish films will be held as part of this festival:
 The retrospective “Krzysztof Kieślowski: a documentary biography” (by the 80th anniversary of director’s birthday).
Curator programme review by the eminent Polish director Agnieszka Holland

Non-competition programme: 

I’M HERE 

An elderly man is looking after his paralysed wife. Despite his age and health problems, he’s doing his best to relieve her suffering, which is getting worse day by day. His daughter helps him, trying to balance her care with her work in the hospital and her own family life. Everyone has a different view on how to properly care for the sick, which often causes arguments.

The juxtaposition of animated drawings and archival material takes us back forty years and enables us to uncover an extraordinary family secret.
