Crows 1994

66 mins Poland Director. Dorota Kedzierzawska

Wrona (which means “crow” in Polish) is neglected by her feckless mother, laughed at by her classmates, and furious with the world. So she steals a cute little girl to become her surrogate mother. But she soon discovers just how hard being a parent really is. Dorota Kiedzerawska’s remarkable film about a damaged girl trying to heal herself is tough yet tender, elevated by gorgeous cinematography and ultimately exhilarating.
