Film show: ‘Green Border’, the Polish refugee drama that sparked right-wing backlash

Issued on:

Since its premiere in Venice in September, Polish director Agnieszka Holland’s refugee drama “Green Border” has been showered with awards and praise. But it sparked outrage from Poland’s now-former right-wing government, with politicians calling it “Nazi propaganda.” FRANCE 24 film critic Lisa Nesselson explains the negative reactions to what she calls an “excellent” film.

We will also see the French thriller “Roll of the Dice” by Yvan Attal, about two couples whose friendship is tested by lies, guilt and suspicion.

Lisa also takes us to Clos Lucé, the French castle where Leonardo da Vinci spent the last three years of his life. It currently hosts an exhibition focused on the animated film “The Inventor”, based on the famous Italian genius.

We finish with a look at the Clermont-Ferrand International Short Film Festival.
