The Officer’s Wife…An Extraordinary Film

Piotr Uzarowicz’s film about the Katyn massacre is more than a documentary – it is a powerful, heart-wrenching account of a young man’s search for the truth about what happened to his grandfather – a polish army officer – during WW2. Following his father’s death, Uzarowicz discovers a manuscript written by his grandmother which sets him on a journey of discovery leading to the massacre of 20,000 polish officers at the hands of the Soviets in 1940. Artfully blending personal testimony with powerful visual images and riveting narrative, The Officer’s Wife tells the story of a family torn apart by one of history’s most heinous war crimes. It is an unforgettable experience and very highly recommended.
