May, 1945. Germany has surrendered. In a small Polish town two soldiers are ordered to assassinate a communist commissar searching for his son. In the midst of the assassination attempt one of the soldiers becomes infatuated with a barmaid. As the fateful hour grows closer each of these characters will be drawn closer to some decisive realization.

Originally released in 1958, Andrzej Wajda’s <em>Ashes and Diamonds</em> is a bracing yet romantic war film that surveys the ways in which the dousing of one conflict can lead to the kindling of others. We are honored to offer this memorial screening of one of the late Polish master’s most revered works.
