Polish Film Festival Part II: Communion

Communion, documentary, 2016, 72 min. Directed and Written by: Anna Zamecka

In her film debut, filmmaker and anthropologist Anna Zamecka places her camera right in the middle of the family of Ola, a teenage girl who almost singlehandedly cares for her little brother Nikodem and her alcoholic father. Her mother is completely out of the picture, as she moved in with her new boyfriend some time ago, but Ola still lives in the hope of bringing her back home. Nikodem’s Holy Communion is a pretext for the family to meet up and Ola is entirely responsible for preparing the perfect family celebration.

A tragic, in parts humorous and even cautiously optimistic portrait of two children left completely to their own devices, and an ode to the incredible strength of a combative fourteen-year-old girl. Winner of Best Documentary Award at the European Film Awards 2017.
