"Krzysztof Lang’s skillfully crafted drama March ‘68... has the kind of energized and committed cast one can watch forever in the best of European cinema.” (Kurt Barlow, The Independent)

March ‘68 masterfully combines archival footage of actual events and a tender love story between two young people. Set against the backdrop of the volatile Communist era of 1960s Poland, this coming-of-age story pits romance against politics. Hania, a Jewish theatre student, falls in love with Janek, a student at the University of Technology. When her parents lose their respective jobs due to Wladyslaw Gomulka’s antisemitic purges, Hania opts to stay in Poland instead of emigrating with them. Politics soon catches up with the young lovers .
