Agnieszka Holland: In Darkness

In Darkness “tries to recreate the horrors without being superficial”Director Agnieszka Holland is striving for reality and honesty in her film about Polish Jews hiding from the Nazis

It is late January and two days since Agnieszka Holland's tough Holocaust film, In Darkness, was nominated for the foreign-language film Oscar. She has been in this position before, but 2012 is the first time that the 63-year-old director has represented her homeland: Poland. On the night, the prize will go to Iran's A Separation. For now, though, Holland feels like she is carrying the weight of the Polish people on her shoulders.
