At a time when global affairs seem to be becoming ever more intimately bound up with all of our lives, the masterful Cold War, from Oscar winning Polish director Paweł Pawlikowski, explores the effects of geopolitics on the freedom of human hearts; how music and art transcend circumstance; and the impossibility of love in impossible times.

A beautifully shot masterpiece, Cold War won multiple European Film Awards and garnered multiple Academy Award and BAFTA nominations. The film is a must-see – and a fitting curtain raiser for our 2020 season.

Cold War, dir. Paweł Pawlikowski, 2018, 1 hour 28 minutes.
