This season – titled Polish Cities – will look closely at the landscapes, history and uniqueness of Polish cities.
Our film journey we will start from visiting modern Warsaw, captured by Jerzy Skolimowski in his intriguing “11 minutes”. Polish cinema rarely goes to Lublin but we will drop it a visit in “Carte Blanche”, a moving film by Jacek Lusiński, starring Andrzej Chyra. After that we will show Wroclaw in the 50’s in “Noose”, a Polish film school classic by Wojciech Jerzy Has. Finally one of the most talked about (and most expensive) films of the last decade – full of beauty and history of Poznań – “Influenz” by Łukasz Barczyk. For closing we have chosen “The Promised Land” by the late Polish cinema master – Andrzej Wajda. Hailed as the best Polish film in history, it will show us the industrial traditions of Łódź.
Everything will be held in English, allowing all the residents of Warsaw, regardless of their nationality, to find out more about Polish culture, traditions and history. Our great guests: filmmakers and film experts, will be there to guide the audience through the corners of Polish cities and the charm of Polish cinema.
