The 10th Annual Austin Polish Film Festival was held this past weekend at the Marchesa Hall and Theatre. Along with their screenings of feature films, short film blocks, parties and Polish poster exhibition, there was a judged short film competition. We are proud to share the winner of the competition with you.
It is Alison Klayman's THE NIGHT WITCH, a film created in conjunction with a New York Times issue commemorating the recently deceased. The film is about the remarkable Nadezhda Popova, who flew bombing missions by night for the Soviet Air Force against the Nazis. It's a pretty amazing story, and you'll learn a lot as you enjoy Klayman's beautiful compositions.
