, which had its world premiere in Montreal a few weeks ago.

Aleksandra Konieczna and Olgierd Łukaszewicz. In this touching dramedy, they play real-life artists, Iga Cembrzyńska and late director Andrzej Kondratiuk, whose brother, Janusz Kondratiuk – also a director – co-wrote and helmed the film. 

Werewolf, an excellent and visually alluring, sombre, fairy-tale-like story revolving around a group of pre-teen Holocaust survivors terrorised by a pack of wolves, was appreciated for its directing – the respective award was thus presented to Adrian Panek. The movie, which is also a clever reflection on the nature of good, will have its international premiere at the Fantastic Fest in Austin, Texas, later this week. Nina [+leggi anche:
