Polish Films All Weekend In Austin, Including Part Two of the Scorsese-Selected Polish Classics
An important reminder from AFS Director Of Programming Chale Nafus:
The 9th annual Austin Polish Film Festival opens tonight (Oct 16) and runs through Sunday at the Marchesa.
As always, there is a wealth of exciting, challenging new Polish features, ranging from the marriage-on-the-rocks LOVING to the sweet coming-of-age ONE WAY TICKET TO THE MOON, whose lead actor Filip Pławiak will be in attendance. Polish film critic/professor/festival curator Zbigniew Banaś will be introducing many of the films in the festival.
Long-time world-class filmmaker Andrzej Wajda is represented by his latest masterpiece, WALESA, about the dock worker/union leader who lit the fuse igniting the beginning the long struggle for freedom from Soviet tyranny over Poland.
