Bonus Trivia

.

Prior to directing narrative features, Szumowska made documentary short films that explored life in Poland.

.

"Poland and my roots are very important for me. That’s why I decided to make a feature film in Poland, and with only Polish money. It's so great to have all this international experience behind me – I now feel freer in my own country. My horizons are also broadened by working with so many people around Europe. They taught me what I never would have learned just staying in my own country. This mixture of Polish, not Polish, of being European, gives me a perspective to see Poland through 'new eyes' – paradoxically, more closely... because it’s from a kind of distance." - from The Hollywood Reporter, February 13, 2013

.

"What I have recognized last year that the situation for women in the industry is more special. When you have successful female directors, it is unique and I see that sometimes, it´s hard for men, directors or producers, to appreciate this kind of success. That´s how I feel about this situation." - from www.twitchfilm.com, September 2, 2013
