A Press day on the set of the film by Paweł Pawlikowski

Paweł Pawlikowski, the director of the Oscar winning “Ida”, is making his latest film in the Silesian voivodeship. This Thursday the set of “Cold War” will be open to the journalists so they could take a look behind the scenes of the Opus Film and the Silesia Film Institute co-production.

“Cold War” is set in the 1950s and 1960s. The audience is presented with the impossible love of Zula and Wiktor, who can neither be together nor live without each other. They meet soon after the war ended. Zula has just been accepted into the Mazurek Song and Dance Ensemble and Wiktor is the pianist there and  the musical director of the band. During the band’s tour to East Berlin, the couple is planning to escape to the West, but eventually Wiktor is leaving alone. Few years later they meet in Paris. Zula is not a girl anymore, but a mature elegant woman. Their further fate is a turbulent history of meetings and breakups aiming at a dramatic finale.

The film was written by Paweł Pawlikowski and Janusz Głowacki. Photography is by the Oscar nominee for “Ida” –  Łukasz Żal, scenography by  Katarzyna Sobańska and Marcel Sławiński, both awarded at Gdynia Film Festival.
