DIRECTOR: Malgorzata Szumowska - POLAND

“Balancing bleakness and mirth in equal measure, Body chronicles three haunted souls in Warsaw: an icy coroner who suspects his dead wife may be trying to contact him; his anorexic, suicidal daughter; and her hospital therapist, who moonlights as a medium. Playing unexplained phenomena for dry laughs, like a hanged man who miraculously regains consciousness, the film is a morbidly funny guide to the Great Beyond. Not afraid to find humor in the darkest of places, Szumowska illustrates her character’s spiritual crises with the macabre insight of a contemporary Grimm’s fairy tale. Frank and enigmatic, Body is a film that challenges and rewards in equal measure.”—Chicago Film Festival. Silver Bear, Best Director, Berlin Film Festival. (90 mins.)

Filmography: In the Name Of (2013), Elles (2011), 33 Scenes from Life (2008)
