Polish Cinema: Female Filmmaker Tackles Tough Issues

14 May 2014 11:02 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Of the notably healthy crop of women filmmakers emerging in Poland, few have found stronger resonance abroad recently than Malgorzata Szumowska, (pictured)who took a feature Teddy at last year’s Berlinale for her thoughtful and moody study of a gay priest’s turmoil, “In the Name Of.”

The atmospheric and nuanced tale, co-written with lenser Michal Englert, was also co-produced by Szumowska and navigates deftly through waters of moral conflict that have dragged down many other Polish filmmakers. Although her focus is on complex and credible characters, Szumowska seems to relish taking on hot-button social issues and feels no compunction to steer clear of sensitive subjects; religious hypocrisy, the persistence of homophobia in conservative Polish communities and the occasional condescension of even liberal minded Poles all come under her examination.

Her latest project and sixth feature overall, “Body,” , is, like “In the Name Of,” a return to her roots »
