    The Polish village of Stare Juchy has been pulled apart. A third of the population left to work in Iceland, and those who stayed behind—most of them from the older generation— are hoping for their return. But by now their children and grandchildren are settling into new lives on the other side of Europe. The distance separating them is great and the journey expensive, so Skype remains the only way to stay in touch. 

    Screening followed by a Q&A with DOP Filip Drozdz 

    Pawel Ziemilski was born in 1981. He graduated from the the Łódź National Film School and from the Wajda School in Warsaw.
