“An incendiary film…worth seeking out.” – Leonard Maltin, Indiewire
“Aftermath succeeds in bringing the past into the present. Predicated on the unraveling of the social fabric, Aftermath is a thriller that’s meant to stun.” – J. Hoberman, New York Times.
The Toronto Jewish Film Festival continues its popular Chai Tea & A Movie series on November 24 with Aftermath, a film by Wladyslaw Pasikowski. This controversial, multi-award winning thriller will premiere at the City Playhouse Theatre in Vaughan, the new venue for TJFF’s popular fall/winter series.
The event is co-presented with the Polish-Jewish Heritage Foundation of Canada, and producer Dariusz Jablonski will be attendance and available for a Q+A following the screening.
Aftermath deals with the reality of Polish-Jewish relations since World War II. Upon returning from the United States to the small Polish village he left behind, Franek discovers that his brother Jozek has been ostracized from the community, and receives constant threats. As the two brothers struggle to rebuild their relationship, they are drawn into a gothic tale of intrigue, uncovering a dark secret that forces them to confront the history of their family and their hometown.
Aftermath won the Yad Vashem Chairman’s Award at the 2013 Jerusalem Film Festival and has spawned both acclaim and controversy in Poland, leading some cinemas to ban it.
