March ’68 (Marzec ’68)

Houston Jewish Film Festival

In 1968, Hania and Janek, two Warsaw students uninterested in politics, fall madly in love as the city is engulfed in protests against the authoritarian regime’s anti-Semitic policies and crackdown on civil liberties. But they are soon drawn into the youth uprising, and find their families have taken opposing positions. The dramatic story of March ’68 intertwines romance, history, and politics in Communist-era Poland.

Generous support for this film festival has been provided by Isabelle and Eric Mayer and Lois and George Stark.

The MFAH film department is supported by Tenaris; the Vaughn Foundation; The Consulate General of the Republic of Korea; Nina and Michael Zilkha; Consulate General of Italy in Houston; Italian Cultural Institute in Los Angeles; Consulate General of Brazil in Houston; Franci Neely; Carrin Patman and Jim Derrick; Ms. Laurence Unger; L’Alliance Française de Houston; and ILEX Foundation.
