Body, dir. Małgorzata Szumowska, Poland, 2015, 90 min,
in Polish language with English subtitles

Janusz is a weary coroner who faces the strangest forms of death every day. His daughter Olga is deeply unhappy and bulimic and Anna, her therapist, uses all kinds of alternative therapeutic methods, including communicating with the dead. 

These are the are the superbly acted characters whose stories and viewpoints director-producer Małgorzata Szumowska subtly intertwines, bringing great lightness, tenderness and a great sense of the absurd to this black humoured, yet sympathetic reflection on mourning and loss set in contemporary Warsaw.

Director-producer Małgorzata Szumowska for a talk after the screening discussing her perspective on the craft of filmmaking. 

Part of the Craft of Film series oragnised in collaboration with, and organised by EUNIC London and the Goethe-Institut London in association with the London Film School and supported by the Polish Cultural Institute and the European Commission Representation in the UK.
