Young Polish filmmaker Klara Kochańska is among the 17 winners of this year’s Student Academy Awards.
A graduate of the National Film, Television and Theatre School in Łódź, Kochańska is being honoured for her graduation film Tenants (Lokatorki) in the Foreign Narrative category. This is both the first year that the Foreign Film category has been expanded to include separate awards for narrative, animation and documentary entries, and the first time a film from the Łódź school has received a Student Oscar.
Tenants centres on Justyna, a woman who buys an apartment at a bailiff auction but cannot get into the flat — left with a set of useless keys, she sees her dream turn into a nightmare.
The 43rd Student Academy Awards ceremony will take place on 22 September in Beverly Hills.
