In master Polish filmmaker Andrej Wajda's most important and highly anticipated new film, a story of Polish officers murdered by the NKVD in Katyń during World War II. It is a picture of women unaware of the crime, who were waiting for their husbands, fathers, sons, and brothers; an uncompromising reckoning with the lie of the communist powers, that was to order Poland to forget those who were killed by Stalin's secret police. It is a film about the invincible struggle for memory and truth.
Katyń was OSCAR® Nominee Best Foreign Language Film in 2008 and won the Polish Film awards Best Film, Cinematography, Production Design, as well as the Audience Awards at Washington DC Film Festival and Denver International Film Festival.
