Movie display: ‘Inexperienced Border’, the Polish refugee drama that sparked right-wing backlash

Issued on:

Since premiering in Venice in September, Polish director Agnieszka Holland’s refugee drama “Green Border” has been showered with prizes and praise. But it sparked outrage from Poland’s now former right-wing government, with politicians calling it “Nazi propaganda”. FRANCE 24 film critic Lisa Nesselson explains the backlash to what she calls an “excellent” film.

We also look at French thriller “Roll of the Dice” from Yvan Attal, about two couples whose friendship is tested by lies, guilt and suspicion.

Lisa also takes us to the Clos Lucé, the French chateau where Leonardo da Vinci spent the last three years of his life. It’s currently hosting an exhibition focused on the animated film “The Inventor”, based on the famed Italian genius.

We end with a look at the International Short Film Festival in Clermont-Ferrand.
