Description

Special live MSPIFF40 event Sunday, May 16 at 2:00pm CT.

Film critic David D'Arcy in conversation with filmmaker Agnieszka Holland live via Zoom.

WATCH THE RECORDED CONVERSATION

Agnieszka Holland’s thriller, set on the eve of world WWII, sees Hitler’s rise to power and Stalin’s Soviet propaganda machine pushing their “utopia” to the Western world. Meanwhile an ambitious young journalist, Gareth Jones (James Norton) travels to Moscow to uncover the truth behind the propaganda, but then gets a tip that could expose an international conspiracy, one that could cost him and his informant their lives. Jones goes on a life-or-death journey to uncover the truth behind the façade that would later inspire George Orwell’s seminal book Animal Farm.
