Passes Not Accepted
Two young students – Hania and Janek – meet and fall in love in the midst of social turmoil in 1960’s Warsaw. While the young lovers are uninterested in politics, they find themselves unable to avoid it when Hania’s parents lose their jobs due to the anti-Semitic purge and are forced to emigrate. Hania does not want to leave Janek, and the couple soon participate in a protest rally at the university where they discover freedom comes at a high price.
Tom Miller, retired University of Arizona Humanities professor, and Cookie Little, Tucson J International Film Festival committee member, will be in conversation about what was going on in the world in 1968.
