Initiative 5: Community Connectors
In partnership with Saffron Screen, presenting a selection of Polish films, showcasing a range of directors, genres and moods to give a sample of the rich culture and history of this fascinating country. Many of these films have been lauded with critical acclaim, and some of them are included in the Masterpieces of Polish Cinema UK tour curated by Martin Scorsese.
It is often said that Poland has too much history to digest. Perhaps because of this, there has been a tendency for the country to try to make sense of itself through the medium of film. Often tragic, frequently inspiring, sometimes funny, Polish movies have provided European culture with some of the most extraordinary and enigmatic films in the past 50 years.
