Agnieszka Holland

Jun 7 — Jun 21, 2024

For six decades, Polish director Agnieszka Holland has been one of the most consistently daring, versatile, and politically committed voices in global cinema. From her initial work in the seventies to her international 1980s breakouts to her triumph in the 1990s as an art-house darling with the sensations Europa, Europa and The Secret Garden; to her increasingly bold dramas of present-day political resistance, like Spoor and Green Border, this year’s harrowing and unforgettable drama about the treatment of refugees at the Belarus–Poland border, Holland consistently produces gripping narratives that are fully attuned to the devastating realities and human tolls that surround us. Museum of the Moving Image is proud to pay tribute to an uncompromising career with a diverse selection of some of her greatest work, including early, rarely screened gems and recent films that show her undimmed ability to depict historical trauma and human struggle with sensitivity and compassion.
