Basia and Marek have been on the run their whole lives. Along with their nine-year-old daughter Ula, they experience what it’s like to be an immigrant in Sweden. When a Swedish social worker visits their home, she witnesses Ula’s everyday reality, as seen from the perspective of the local culture. Ula is then taken away from her parents and placed in foster care. Will Basia and Marek stick together and fight for Ula? Will they succeed in rebuilding their bond and their family?
Marcin Koszalka’s first fiction film is a meticulously-shot and atmospheric reconstruction of 1967 Krakow, inspired by the real stories of two serial killers who terrorised the city during that time. Undoubtedly a painstaking labour of love, it requires just as much dedication from the viewer to bridge the cryptic ellipses of Kosalka”s own script. Offering only the very high tips of an iceberg that is left mostly submerged from the naked eye, The Red Spider is strictly art house fare.
Followed by closing night party in the cinema bar.
