Dir. Piotr Domalewski | 2020, 98min
With Zofia Stafiej, Arkadiusz Jakubik, Kinga Preis

“[A] moving drama, filled with black humour and empathy, that would make Ken Loach proud.”
—Cineuropa

New York Premiere! Piotr Domalewski follows up on his award-winning debut Silent Night with a darkly funny drama about a wayward seventeen-year-old, Ola, who suddenly becomes the head of her family after her estranged father dies abroad. She sets off to Ireland to bring his body back to Poland, but her main concern is whether or not he saved the money for a car he had promised her. Dealing with a foreign bureaucracy in her own streetwise way, Ola finally gets to know the father who had been largely absent in her life. I Never Cry is a bittersweet coming-of-age story that explores the complexity of family bonds and economic emigration across Europe.

Presented in partnership with the Polish Cultural Institute New York and co-programmed by Tomek Smolarski
