'Teases out the psychological roots of a stunning crime...intelligently dodges sensationalism throughout' - Variety
Winner Best Director - Sofia International Film Festival 2016
"One day you'll pay for your laughter and my tears." Based on true events, I, Olga Hepnarová tells the story of the last woman to be executed in Czechoslovakia. In 1975, at only 22 years of age, Olga Hepnarová was hanged for mass murder. A lesbian and a loner, Olga lived by her own moral code; one which eventually led her to enact punishments for the crimes that society had committed against her. Guided by her letters the filmmakers delve into Olga's psyche to reconstruct the events that led to her disastrous actions. Olga's story is told with intelligence and sympathy, and Michalina Olszanska is captivating in the title role.
