In the dog days of summertime, when blockbusters and kiddie franchises reign, there are always a few independent movies that find their way to Cinestudio – and our adventuresome audiences. Winning great reviews in Europe for the performances of its two leads, Treasure stars actor/filmmaker Lena Dunham (Catherine Called Birdy, Girls) and venerable British actor/comedian Stephen Fry (Fry and Laurie, Wilde) on an unforgettable road trip. Their journey sets off in grey 1991 post-Communist Poland, as a 30-something music journalist (Dunham) travels with her irascible Jewish father to Warsaw, where he takes pleasure drinking and dancing, to his childhood home in Lodz. As together they draw closer to Auschwitz, he tentatively reveals the long-buried memories of his past. Based on the book by Lily Brett, a child of Holocaust survivors.

“…philosophical, witty, and undeniably haunted.” – Bill Newcott, Saturday Evening Post.
