Klezmer

Klezmer

“A deeply theatrical piece” – Cineuropa

A group of young people venture to the forest to collect pine cones and twigs for firewood in the summertime of 1943 in Nazi-occupied Poland. They talk, laugh, flirt and make plans for the future. But the day does not proceed as expected as they stumble upon on the body of a wounded and practically unconscious Jewish musician. Premiering at Venice Film Festival, Klezmer, the feature debut of playwright-turned-director Piotr Chrzan, captures the complex relationship between Poles and Jews under German occupation.
