Poland, Fiction, 1948, 109′

Wanda Jakubowska is a Polish filmmaker known for her work on the Holocaust, herself a victim of it. This film, one of the earliest depictions of life in concentration camps, is a powerful testimony. Filmed in Auschwitz shortly after the end of the war, it portrays the experience of several women in this camp. A little-known film that is presented in a digital restoration that shows the film in a new light (and sound).
