The Focus section of D’A 2021 is dedicated to one of the most solid and recognized filmmakers on the current European scene. Polish Malgorzata Szumowska has an extensive filmography despite her youth, and her cinema is always daring, far from formal and narrative clichés, in a fine balance between pure auteur cinema and the codes of the audiovisual mainstream. On the occasion of the retrospective and the premiere of her new film at the festival, the director will attend the Filmoteca de Catalunya to present Nunca volverá a nevar, session that will take place on Wednesday, May 5, at 7:30 p.m. The projection will open the cycle, where four of her feature films, awarded in Berlin and Locarno, among others, will be seen.
