Following his Oscar-winning film Ida, Paweł Pawlikowski returns with a stunning and sweeping epic, set against the backdrop of post-war Europe. When Zula (Kulig), a young singer from a provincial background who forces her way into a communist folk troupe assembled for propaganda purposes in 1940s Poland, meets Wiktor (Kot), a talented composer who dreams of artistic freedom, the pair fall deeply in love. Sumptuously shot in black and white, Cold War spans decades and nations to tell a love story that is as tragic as it is moving, and as transportive as it is honest.
