MS Slavic 7

Canada, 2019


Audrey Benac travels to Harvard University to pore over letters that her great-grandmother Zofia Bohdanowiczowa had written to a fellow poet. Coming up against her aunt’s disapproval as well as other complications, Audrey struggles to dig into an intimate past while facing her own troubled present.

MS Slavic 7 Directed by Sofia Bohdanowicz, Deragh Campbell

Critics reviews

In its balance of a wispy narrative and long, quiet episodes of textual close reading reminiscent of the work of Straub-Huillet, MS Slavic 7 feels incomplete in a productive way, giving us just enough of the outline of a young woman’s psychological existence to project the rest into the implied absences in her great-grandmother’s poetry and prose.
