Poland ‘All’ in for Oscar

Borcuch's Sundance screener entered into foreign-language kudos race

Poland has chosen Jacek Borcuch’s “All That I Love” as the country’s Oscar nomination for best foreign film.

Pic screened at Sundance earlier this year.

A coming of age story set against the dramatic political upheavals in the early 1980s, when striking dockyard workers sparked the Solidarity democracy movement and marshal law was declared, the film tells the story of four teenagers who create a punk rock band.

The first Polish film to look at the political changes of the period through the eyes of youth, the film picked up an audience award and best production design last year at the national film festival in Gydnia.

Borcuch, 40, is an actor, writer and director with long involvement in both film and television.
