VIDEO: Directed by Polish filmmaker Jakub Piątek, the film offers an intimate and gripping portrait of young pianists' entry into adulthood as they compete in one of the world's most cutthroat piano competitions.
The experimental film ‘Nightsss’ (Noccc) by first-timers Drs Sandra Frydrysiak and Weronika Lewandowska from the SWPS University in Warsaw, which immerses the international audience in the sound structures of the Polish language, has been included in the festival’s New Frontier section as one of 14 works from around the world.
Posting the news of her award on Facebook, the surprised actress, who didn’t attend the festival, wrote: “Oh s***! A moment ago I received an award at the Sundance festival. Thank you!!!”
As well as the ‘dame’ of Polish cinema Krystyna Janda, the film stars award-winning Katarzyna Smutniak, known for her roles in ‘From Paris in Love’ and ‘Perfect Strangers’.
