Ewa Bukowska talks about her first feature film 53 Wars, and about her interest in sufferance that comes from wars to the people that are involved. She chooses a different narrative approach, telling the story of a woman married to a war correspondent who does not manage the situation anymore and slowly slides into mental disorder.

53 Wars: When Anka and Witek decide to have a baby, she gives up her career as a journalist while he continues his as a war correspondent. Anka starts to live in fear of receiving a phone call telling her that her husband has died and she ends up developing a post-traumatic stress syndrome similar to that of soldiers fighting on the front. The actress Ewa Bukowska debuts behind the movie camera for a powerful female portrait, part family drama and part psychological thriller.
