"We bought Fugue on the basis of the script "explains Virginie Devesa who heads up Alpha Violet alongside Keiko Funato. "Keiko met the director and the producer in Sofia and had already been blown away by The Lure [+leggi anche:

, Agnieszka Smoczyńska’s first full-length film which won the special prize at the 2016 Sundance Festival. Ultimately, Fugue is a film that examines the condition of women, their independence. As a starting point, the director observed that the female condition is often reduced to women being able to have children. Do they have a choice? Can they escape from this role that is so readily assigned to them?"

Written by Gabriela Muskała (who is also part of the film-cast, alongside Łukasz Simlat, Małgorzata Buczkowska, Piotr Skiba, Halina Rasiakówna and Zbigniew Waleryś to name a few), Fugue follows Alicja who has lost her memory and has no idea how she ended up where she is today. Over the course of two years, she manages to rebuild her life: she is changed, independent and far from home. She has no desire to remember the past. But when her family finally find her, she is obliged to take on the role of mother, daughter and wife, surrounded by people who are complete strangers to her. What are we left with when we forget that we love someone? Do we really need to remember what it feels like to be in love in order to be happy?

Produced by Agnieszka Kurzydło for Polish company MD4 with the Czech contingent at Axman Production (Karla Stojáková) and the Swedes at Common Ground Pictures (Jonas Kellagher), Fugue was co-produced by the Mazovia Warsaw Film Fund (Anna Spisz), Odra-Film and Film I Väst.
