On Thursday, January 28th, the CMU IFF emulated our in-person festival event by hosting a screening followed by a free Live Discussion on Zoom with Polish director Jan Komasa, director of the award-nominated film "Corpus Christi". The discussion was facilitated by Patrick Stanny, a graduate student at Carnegie Mellon University, and was moderated by Dr. Patricia Donohue, Adjunct Professor of Psychology at Chatham University, as well as Jolanta Lion, Assistant Director of CMU's Humanities Center and Director of the CMU International Film Festival.


About the Director:

Born in 1981 in Poland, Jan Komasa grew up in a family of musicians and actors and became an actor himself at a young age. After witnessing the making of Schindler’s List, he decided to pursue film directing and graduated from the National Film School in Łódź. His debut short film, Nice To See You, came third in competition for the Cinéfondation Award (to support future international filmmakers) at the 2004 Cannes Film Festival. He gained further acclaim for his first two features, Suicide Room (2011) and Warsaw '44 (2014).
