Warsaw ’44 dir. Jan Komasa, Poland 2014, 130 mins
Join us at Ognisko Polskie for the last Kino Klub meeting of this year as we will be showing Jan Komasa’s epic film depicting the tragic events of the Warsaw Uprising. Kino Klub is a series of monthly screenings dedicated to showcasing the most intriguing films in contemporary Polish cinema.
‘Warsaw ‘44’ is a story about young people facing coming-of-age in the times of war. They try to live their lives to the full, as each day may be their last one. Death lurks behind every corner. In summer of 1944 Stefan (Józef Pawłowski), taking care of his brother and mother, decides to join the resistance movement as the rebellion is about to outbreak. The scale of horror will, however, shatter his romantic image of fighting for his motherland.
This film is in Polish with English subtitles.
A drinks reception will follow the screening.
