Agnieszka Holland and Kasia Adamik, directors. In Polish with English subtitles (128 min., 2017).

Duszejko, an eccentric retired construction engineer, an astrologist and a vegetarian, lives in a small mountain village on the Czech-Polish border. One day her beloved dogs disappear. A few months later she discovers a dead body of her neighbour, a poacher. The only traces leading to the mysterious death are those of roe deer hooves around the house…

As time goes by, more grisly killings are discovered. The victims, all hunters, belonged to the local elite. The police investigation proves ineffective. Duszejko has her own theory: all murders were committed by wild animals…

Please join us for a free film screening of "Spoor" and Central European treats to celebrate Polish author Olga Tokarczuk's 2018 Nobel Prize in Literature.

"Spoor" was adapted from Olga Tokarczuk's novel "Drag Your Plow Over the Bones of the Dead." We will give away a limited number of free copies of the book to the first guests through the door.
