PRETTY RADICAL

This investigative documentary, which was commissioned by The Guardian, follows 19-year old Paulina, who joined one of the most radical far right groups in Poland – the National Radical Camp, an organization known for its racist and anti-semitic rhetoric and violence.

Paulina was quickly selected as a candidate in local elections by her mentor because “she is a pretty young woman,” who might improve the image of the group. In this short film, together with another filmmaker, Marta tries to find out what drew Paulina to the nationalist group in the first place and if anything will make her question her loyalty to them.
