To celebrate the hundredth anniversary of Poland’s regained independence, the Polish Filmmakers Association is organizing a series of screenings of films with a historical theme. The screenings of these masterpieces of Polish cinema will be held throughout 2018 on four continents; Europe, North America, Asia and Australia.
The idea behind the project is to disseminate knowledge of Polish art and history in the international arena by presenting films of outstanding artistic quality. The canon of seven works recommended by a committee of experts offers audiences around the world both a wide thematic spectrum and a diversity of aesthetics.
The films selected show various historical periods, from Poland under the Partitions in The Promised Land and Nights and Days, via the Second World War in The Pianist and Volhynia, and the Warsaw Uprising in Warsaw 44, to the post-war fight against the communist authorities in Ashes and Diamonds and Man of Marble.
