Two students, Hania and Janek, fall madly in love in the midst of social turmoil and Jewish discrimination in 1960s Warsaw. While the lovers are uninterested in politics, they are unable to avoid it after Hania’s parents lose their jobs in the anti-Semitic purge that led to the expulsion of some 13,000 Jews (most of the remnants of the community that numbered 3.3 million before the Holocaust). Can their love survive in a country overwhelmed by rebellion? Beautifully filmed in vivid colors with lively music and superb performances, March 68 is a Romeo and Juliet story of its time.

“Those protests were part of the dissent movement against Soviet satellite regimes, notably the Prague Spring in nearby Czechoslovakia…. March 68 is one of few depictions of this historical moment to reach the American market.”
