  One of the most important Polish film of the decade: watch it online! 
  A month after its cinematic premiere, you can enjoy the award-winning film Kill It and Leave This Town directed by Mariusz Wilczyński on our NH VOD platform with English subtitles. 
  Kill it and Leave This Town won the Golden Lion at the last Gdynia Film Festival and won honorable mention at the prestigious animation festival in Annecy. The film also had special screenings at the Museum of Modern Art in New York.

  The hypnotizing work by Wilczyński impresses with a gallery of characters who speak in the film with the voices of cult personalities of Polish cinema, including Irena Kwiatkowska, Andrzej Wajda, Marek Kondrat, Barbara Krafftówna, Daniel Olbrychski, Krystyna Janda and Anna Dymna. 
  Wilczyński's film is a dialogue with ghosts filled with tenderness, a blues song honoring friendship, a painstaking resurrection of people, places, dialogues, neon lights, sounds and even wisps of cigarette smoke. The film is autobiographical, evoking the atmosphere of a childhood under communist rule, followed by growing up in a post-transformation, increasingly colorful Poland. Kill It and Leave This Town combines poetry with harsh realism, the living with the dead, nostalgia with acceptance of loss in an animated, moving farewell to his parents' generation, which was marked by WWII, but it is also a reminder that the conversation with those who shaped us never ends. 
  * Attention. This film is available only in Poland.
