The acclaimed filmmaker returns to the big screen with a genre-bending, ecologically-minded thriller. A retiree and avowed defender of animal rights living in Southern Poland believes she knows who is behind a recent spate of murders in the wilderness near her home. Yet she's dismissed by her neighbors, who view her with deep suspicion. Drawing inspiration from local fairy tales, Spoor dissects political corruption and environmental activism in a small town.
