Aftermath tells the story of two brothers, Jozek (Maciej Stuhr) and Franek (Ireneusz Czop) who discover a secret and are forced to revise their perception of their father, their entire family, their neighbors, and the history of their nation. Franek, the older brother, returns home to Poland after many years living in Chicago and discovers that his younger brother is being mysteriously threatened and shunned by local townspeople. What follows is a gothic tale of intrigue as the brothers are drawn into investigating the village's dark secrets.
Inspired by actual events, Aftermath caused controversy in its native Poland due to its present-day reckoning with a dark period in that country's history. The film won the Yad Vashem Award at this year's Jerusalem Film Festival, and is coming to Los Angeles theaters starting November 15th!

Weekend feature by J. Hoberman in the New York Times:
"Aftermath succeeds in bringing the past into the present. Predicated on the unraveling of the social fabric, Aftermath is a thriller that’s meant to stun."
Fascinating podcast interview with producer Dariusz Jablonski in Tablet Magazine:
Great review by Marshall Fine in Huffington Post:
"You could think of Aftermath as a Polish version of 12 Years a Slave. A powerful lesson in the timeless nature of history that will shake viewers with its building emotional power."
