Aftermath (Pokłosie)


“Pokłosie may be the most controversial Polish film ever made, for it touches a raw nerve among Poles: that of past anti-Semitism in Poland and its persistence today.” — The Economist, 2013

Aftermath is based on the historical facts of a 1941 pogrom in a village in north-eastern Poland during which several hundred Jews were burned in a barn by their Polish neighbours. Directed by Polish filmmaker Wladyslaw Pasikowski, co-writer of the Oscar-nominated Katyn, Aftermath is a dramatic feature film about two brothers, Franek (Ireneusz Czop) and Jozek (Maciej Stuhr), who attempt to break the silence surrounding the massacre by travelling to the village where it took place and confronting its residents.
