Roman Polanski: Odd Man Out

by Marina Zenovich Special Screenings

Roman Polanski was the centre of controversy at the 2009 Zurich Film Festival, when the Polish director was invited as a guest of honour to collect a Golden Eye for his life’s work. The story is well known: Polanski was arrested in Zurich, although eventually not extradited to the USA by the Swiss authorities.
With her film WANTED AND DESIRED, filmmaker Marina Zenovich had already cast a critical eye upon the legal background of the Polanski affair before the above turn of events. This follow up analyses the most recent developments.How did Polanski come to be arrested in Switzerland – and at exactly that point in time? What role does US justice play in this case? And what does the then victim Samantha Geimer and her family think today?
