Introduction on March 27 by Annette Insdorf

One of the most acclaimed works of his early career, Has’s sixth feature follows a popular radio actress (Barbara Krafftówna) on a trip to Paris, where she crosses paths with another actor (Zbigniew Cybulski) with whom she had a fraught love affair and subsequent betrayal during World War II. The multifaceted and engrossing How to Be Loved ranks as a key expression of a central preoccupation within Has’s filmography—namely, the lasting scars upon the Polish collective psyche left by the trauma of the war.

Screening with:
Wojciech Jerzy Has, 1948, Poland, 12m
Has’s first film (and his first fiction) follows a young boy who dreams of being able to buy an accordion.
