A major international hit, Katyn finds Wajda returning to the landscape of WWII and a Polish tragedy of that conflict.

The film tells the true story of the 1940 Soviet massacre of 15,000 Polish Army officers in Katyn, Russia; among them was Wajda's own father. Wajda elaborates this key moment in modern Polish history with precise dispassion and moral outrage. As the New York Times notes, "Poland has been fortunate to have, in Mr. Wajda, a tireless, clear-sighted chronicler." (121 mins., 35mm)

Screened in conjunction with the 2009 Midwest Slavic Conference hosted by Ohio State’s Center for Slavic and East European Studies. Click here for more information.
