FKA’s Watch and Talk Polish Cinema

FKA’s Watch and Talk Polish Cinema is a unique opportunity to watch and discuss classics of Polish cinematography in English language. Screenings of the movies (with English subtitles) will be preceded with a short introduction and followed by a discussion that will provide you with chance to expand your knowledge of Polish culture, history, and art, as well as share your views on the movie. We want to engage you in a debate, give you an opportunity to meet other English-speaking film lovers and, of course, enjoy fantastic snacks and drinks offered by Klub Dragon. We invite all foreign visitors, Erasmus students and locals who want to use their language skills in a cool setting.

This cyclical event is organized by Fundacja Kultury Akademickiej and Klub Dragon. This time we're revisiting an old friend of ours - Mr. Krzysztof Kieślowski. Having achieved great artistic success with his 'Decalogue' series, Kieślowski spent his final years creating movies outside of Poland. In France, he found critical and commercial acclaim that he failed to experience in Poland. Nevertheless, he returned to his homeland to develop the second installation of his great triptych - 'Three Colors'. 'White' takes place in a country during a time of rebirth, with the nation adapting to new expectations of its long time coming reunion with Europe. During this time of uncertainty, Karol, a freshly divorced hairdresser, finds himself returning to the country he once abandoned, struggling to get his life back on track and, just as his motherland, adjust to the new reality. 'White' was another piece in Kieślowski's series of cinematographic triumphs, winning him the Silver Bear award for Best Director at the 44th Berlin International Film Festival in 1994.
