Bread and Salt (Chleb i sól), dir. Damian Kocur, Poland 2022, 99 min., Polish with English subtitles

Packing a deep emotional punch this brilliant debut feature from Damian Kocur takes us on the journey of two brothers in a small Polish town during one hot summer. Both pianists, one studies at the Warsaw Academy, the other chooses to spend time with mates and in the local kebab shop. Through the complex soundtrack, which is as important as the observational camerawork, we confront our prejudices, see how easy it is to be misunderstood and ask “where does violence begin?”

Inspired by real events and cast with non-professional actors (the two brothers are in fact siblings) this is a raw, fluid exploration of what it means to be young in small town contemporary Europe.

Multiple festival awards have followed the Horizons Special Jury Prize at Venice Film Festival, from Cairo, Antalya as well as the journalists and Youth juries at Gdynia, Poland. Tough and brutally real.

The screening will be followed by a Q&A with actors Tymoteusz and Jacek Bies.
