It is a sunny summer day in 1943. Poland is under German occupation. A group of young people, inhabitants of a nearby village, goes to the forest to gather fir cones and brushwood to use as firewood. They talk, flirt and make plans for the future. However this outing has an unexpected outcome: a certain event that is new to them will change their lives and the lives of other people who appear as the story develops.
"One day, I was playing with other children in the yard behind a big, old house in which we lived with a few other families. We were running around, when suddenly our nanny yelled: ‘Don't go running there, it's where they buried the Jew!' We sat down next to her on the grass and she told us about the only Jew that lived in our village before the war. He was shot dead on a summer day during the war by another villager, a General Government Polish policeman. These strange facts, fascinating for a child, stuck in my mind. Years later, from these memories, coupled with what I had read about the Holocaust, Klezmer was born." [Piotr Chrzan]

PIOTR CHRZAN has always been interested in cinema, but the Polish educational system decided that he was a born director and declined to educate him in that field. So he graduated with a degree in philosophy, as no one tried to teach him anything else. He has been a creative artist ever since he can remember: he has written over a dozen plays, which have often won awards in competitions held in Poland; two of them he directed for Polish television. In 2010 he got his start as a film director. He wrote and directed two short films, Night Visit and Toreador's Last Song. He also wrote screenplays for two Polish feature films: Odd One Out and Gabriel. Klezmer marks Chrzan's feature directorial debut.
