Series to watch: ROJST by Jan Holoubek (2018) Drama/Crime (5 Episodes)

Because of the pandemic, our Polish movie screenings are not possible at this time. So instead, for every month we miss, here is a movie suggestion to watch at home. This is episode three of the series (May replacement).

The Mire (available on Netflix)

Poland, early 80's, the middle of a small, forgotten town. In the local forest a young prostitute and a communist activist are brutally murdered. At the same time a couple of teenagers commit a suicide. Two journalists of a local newspaper are investigating the crimes. The more they dig around the more they find themselves in a "mire" which is extremely hard to get out of.

In addition to a great plot, the music in this series is phenomenal!
