Birds are singing in Kigali
[Ptaki śpiewają w Kigali], directed by Joanna Kos-Krauze and Krzysztof Krauze, Poland 2017, 113'
A Polish woman ornithologist escapes from Rwanda, where a bloody civil war erupts. She takes a Tutsi girl with her and saves her from certain death. The film of Joanna Kos-Krauze is a story about traumas through the prism of two women in Poland in the 1990s, but not the kind we know from the retro fantasies of thirty-year-olds. It is also the first Polish film about refugees.
