Sat 09 Mar

Festivals & Series

A stylish, keenly observed psychological thriller set in the world of espionage, it unfolds simultaneously on both sides of the Iron Curtain: Hans (Gierszał) enjoys the freedoms of 1980s Strasbourg whilst Jan (Schuchardt) fights for a Free Poland in the dark days of martial law. Holoubek (previously acclaimed for 25 Years of Innocence) has us on the edge of our seats as we slowly understand the connections between the two men.

Rooted in actual events of Cold War Poland, the multi-award winning Doppleganger explores identity theft, and the way international politics affect the lives of ordinary people.
