Beyond The Steppes

Tonight we’re at Bozar for the première of Beyond The Steppes, a film about a Polish woman deported with her baby to the remote land of USSR in 1940.


Director Vanja d’Alcantara tells the story of a woman’s forced journey to the steppes of Central Asia.


In 1940 Nina, a young Polish woman, is deported with her baby by the Soviet Army to the remote and inhospitable lands of the USSR. She has to work in a Sovkhoz (state-owned farm) guarded by the Russian political police. When her child becomes ill, she sets out on a search of medications with a group of Kazakh nomads.


The film draws the intimate and personal experience of this woman, forced into exile, in her struggle against the extreme conditions of this inhuman land.
