The Krzysztof Kieslowski Beyond Borders Award in the Feature Film category goes to
directed by Lukasz Palkowski.
Lukasz Palkowski’s film is engaging, engrossing, dramatically and thematically compelling, beautifully directed with a charismatic ensemble cast. From its gripping opening sequence, the story of Poland’s first heart transplant surgeon during Communist Poland, commands the attention of its audience. It presents a tense and atmospheric tale that sets science vs. politics and religion. While the film shows the unique problems faced by Polish medical doctors under communism, it also speaks of the worldwide efforts of physicians who are dedicated to enhancing the wellbeing of humanity. The film is elegant, moving and inspiring.
