The Wedding Day (Wesele), by acclaimed director Wojciech Smarzowski, tackles the 1941 Jedwabne pogrom, during which Polish villagers tortured and murdered hundreds of Jewish neighbors. The story is set at a wedding celebration in a small town in northeastern Poland, and moves between past and present, with repressed memories of past violent events resurfacing in the present. In The Wedding Day, Smarzowski offers a stringent critique of current-day nationalism and the politics of denial in Poland.

In Polish with English subtitles (135 min., 2021). Free and open to the public. Tickets can be obtained in advance at https://myumi.ch/Nmr2M
