My Polish Honeymoon

Tuesday, March 3rd, 2020 at 1:00 PM

NOTE: all screenings at this venue are 19+.

Anna and Adam, a young Parisian couple with Jewish origins, are about to travel to Poland for the first time. Newlyweds, technically speaking, this will be their honeymoon. They will attend a memorial ceremony in Adam’s Grandfather’s village honoring the Jewish community destroyed 75 years prior. Adam is ambivalent yet sees it as an opportunity for quality time with his wife, away from their baby boy. Anna, on the other hand, is both extremely anxious and overly excited about the trip to her Grandmother’s country. She is hoping to reconnect with her roots and finally discover more about her own family’s history, which was always a mystery.
