Film Info


An experimental documentary told through the eyes (and lens) of Katie—an amateur filmmaker and American rich kid—making a film about Alicja, an erratic unemployed Polish actress. Set in a post-Brexit-vote London, Katie colonizes and disrupts Alicja’s life, mirroring the treatment of migrants in the U.K.: welcomed, used, and then discarded. Directed by Ewa Banaszkiewicz and Mateusz Dymek.
