"COMMUNION" IN JAPANESE THEATHRES
On June 23rd Anna Zamecka's film "Communion" will premiere in cinemas in Japan. Japanese version of the title is "Shukufuku".
14-year-old Ola not only takes care of her dysfunctional father, autistic brother and mother who lives separately, but most of all tries to reunite the family. She lives in the hope of bringing her mother back home. Her 13-year-old brother Nikodem’s Holy Communion is a pretext for the family to meet up. Ola takes on the full responsibility for preparing the perfect family celebration, whereas Nikodem is watching his family's struggle from his own, exceptional perspective
"Communion" by Anna Zamecka discovers the beauty of the rejected, the strength of the weakest, the need for change where there's no hope for it. It is a crash course of growing up which teaches us that no failures are final. Especially when it comes to love.
