Preview/ Tower. A Bright Day

Director Jagoda Szelc’s striking debut was rapturously received in Poland upon release – it’s an intense family drama with eerie overtones that blurs the boundary between horror and high-art. Two sisters, Kaja and Mula, are reunited after six years for the First Communion of Mula’s young daughter. However, the family set-up isn’t as straightforward as it seems, with a promised summer idyll darkened by paranoia, hallucinations and apocalyptic portents. Sound designer Kacper Habisiak sets the ominous tone from the start, while Szelc’s symbolic approach enriches the mystery.
