Cold War (15) – Brilley Village Hall
It is against an oppressive Cold War backdrop that singer Zula and pianist Wiktor meet and fall obsessively in love. As they tour across Eastern Europe, it becomes increasingly pressing for them to find a way to slip though the Iron Curtain. With its vibrant black and white cinematography, the film is both evocative and searching, with subject-matter that carries personal resonance for director Pawlikowski (Ida). This exquisite, tumultuous love story manages to encapsulate and reflect the upheaval of twentieth century Polish history.
