Don’t cry when I am gone

Don’t cry when I am gone

Directed by Slawomir Grunberg

The story of Wanda, a young Jewish woman who miraculously survived the Holocaust. After the war Wanda lived and worked in Poland where she became a celebrated poet, songwriter and TV personality. The title of the movie “Don’t cry when I am gone” comes from the famous song written by Wanda in Poland during the sixties, set to the music of the popular Italian musician, Marino Marini. The film features Wanda’s friends and her son Zygmunt telling stories about her extraordinary life and her funny and moving eccentricities. This is an amazing psychological portrait of a woman who was capable of overcoming her war trauma to create a family and build a great artistic career.
