NEW ENGLAND PREMIERE. In this chilling, modern interpretation of the Dybbuk legend, Piotr discovers human bones buried in the backyard of the Polish country home of his future in-laws. It’s the eve of his wedding, so Piotr (Itay Tiran) overlooks this ominous find, but the soul inhabiting the remains won’t let go of the bridegroom. As the wedding celebration’s bacchanalia spins out of control, director Marcin Wrona’s brilliant story of possession becomes an unflinching, allegorical censure of contemporary Poland, where the absence of Jews and willful irresolution on matters of Polish antisemitism, gives rise to spirits. Tragically, Wrona died, at age 42, just as the film was to be released.
