For Poland, it was the start of a war that would leave millions dead and many more scattered across the world as refugees. Danuta Maczka, now in her 80s, lived through this time. Her life traces a remarkable odyssey from her farmhouse in Poland, to a labour camp in Siberia, to Iran, Palestine and Egypt - and then her new home in London. Danuta was born a country girl in Rovne, eastern Poland now Rivne, Ukraine.

A Polish girl's journey across three continents
Scientists want to investigate their absence. The detail first attracted the attention of the Polish news media when the village sent an all-girl team to a regional competition for young volunteer firefighters. On a recent visit, four separate television crews had been dispatched to the one-road town, with 96 houses, to cover the case of the missing males. In the years since the last baby boy was born, there have been 12 births in the village, an agricultural community on the edge of the smallest and least populated province in Poland. Residents do not know what accounts for the anomaly, but many think it might all just be a coincidence, like a run of coin flips turning up heads.
H ere is a low-budget experiment in metafiction, or quasi-fiction, with a shimmer of anxiety, shot mostly in black and white with periodic excursions into colour and animation — all about a young Polish woman living alone in a London flat, dealing with issues that are never clearly articulated. The film itself appears to be a faux video diary by a fictional independent film-maker, recounting her experiences making a documentary about the life of a migrant worker in London. Emma Friedman-Cohen plays Katie, the director, and Aneta Piotrowska gives a bold and interesting performance as Alicja, the Polish woman and part-time actor Katie finds through an audition process. Alicja allows Katie into her life, at least partly through loneliness, and seems intensely sexual in a compulsive and troubled way.
