France/Poland 2015, 80 min. In French and Polish with English Subtitles.

Playing as part of New French Cinema Week 2017. With director Julia Kowalski in attendance.
This richly photographed portrait of a Polish-French high school girl in provincial France sharply depicts the dangerous intensity of a young woman’s unrestrained emotion in the midst of a first love. Young Rose’s Polish-born father runs a construction company that employs recently emigrated Poles. A new employee, Jozef, solicits Rose’s help in locating his estranged son, Roman, who is Rose’s age. Rose falls hard for Roman, which places her in the center of an unfolding drama between father and son. 

The film will be presented at The Contemporary Austin’s recently renovated Jones Center. Doors will open at 7:30PM and screening will begin at 8:30. All ticketholders are invited to a wine reception from 7:30-8:30, hosted by Loire Valley sparkling wine, Bouvet Ladubay. Picnics are also welcome!
