(1990, 89 mins., Blu-Ray, Polish with English subtitles) In this funny and sympathetic film about teenage rebellion during the 1968 upheavals in Poland, director Radoslaw Piwowarski explores one generation’s reaction to political turmoil. Following Israel’s Six Day War, Polish reactionaries force a prominent Jewish family to emigrate, resulting in a haunting farewell from Polish friends.
