My Name Is Ki

Polish (Poland)
| German (Germany)

Single mother Ki tries to keep her head above water with jobs as a nude model for an art school or as a go-go dancer. MY NAME IS KI, which won both the Audience Award and Best Actress at the Cottbus Film Festival, explores the tension between responsibility and self-realization and ends up questioning the traditional image of women and mothers in Poland. "MY NAME IS KI is a powerful and honestly ambivalent portrait of a single mother who wants to live instead of just survive" (Zitty).
