Dir. by Wajda (Best Foreign Film 2008 Oscar Nominee)
A story of Polish officers murdered by the NKDV in Katyn during WWII. A picture of women unaware of the crime, who were waiting for their husbands, fathers, sons, and brothers. An uncompromising reckoning with the lie of the communist powers, that was to order Poland to forget those who were killed. A film about an invincible struggle for the memory and truth.
