The festival will commence with an interview between Beata Hughes (director of “in name of”) and Michal Wisniewski – the controversial leader of Ich Troje and co-author of part of the soundtrack for the movie.
“in the name of” is a challenging and thought provoking film appealing to a wide audience and in particular those seeking inspiration and passion in their films.
The festival will also show the following celebrated Polish films; “Dzień Świra” (The day of the Wacko), “Mis” (Teddy Bear), “Nic Śmiesznego” (Nothing Funny), “Nie lubię poniedziałków” (I hate Mondays), “Pan Samochodzik i niesamowity dwor” (Mr. Samochodzik and the Haunted house), “Rejs” (Cruise), “Rozmowy Kontrolowane” (Controlled Calls) and “Seksmisja” (Sex-Mission).
Six of the films will have English subtitles, enabling non-Polish speakers to appreciate the films. This presents a unique opportunity for English viewers to see the realities of Poland during the communist era as well shortly after its collapse in 1989.
More information on each of these films can be found on the Polish Express website (see below).
The event will be held at the Coronet Cinema in Notting Hill Gate. Tickets are £5 each or £3.5 when purchasing three or more. In order to order a ticket, please call at: 0208 96 444 88. Further information, can be found at the website www.polishexpress.co.uk
