2/28 Polish Film Series: Demon

Please join us for a screening of Demon (Marcin Wrona, 2015)

 

A Polish-Israeli co-production, Marcin Wrona's third film is an atmospheric off-horror and a low-key comedy of manners, in which the haunted mansion story line allows different narratives surrounding memory, responsibility and Polish-Jewish relations to converse.
