), are today setting up camp in Wroclaw, in the same neighbourhood of the city that Steven Spielberg chose for Bridge of Spies and Mike van Diem did for Character. Cold War is set in Poland in the 1950s and 1960s. The film will tell the story of a complicated romantic relationship between a woman and two men, set against the backdrop of the performances by popular folk music and dance group Mazowsze, founded in 1948 through a decree from the Ministry of Culture of the post-war communist powers, and which was made up of a choir, a ballet and a national orchestra. As we might imagine, the Cold War will therefore take on at least a dual dimension: both political and personal. The shoot will continue for a few more months (in order to take in the grand tour of the group and film it during the four seasons of the year), in such locations as Croatia and Paris.
