Each of the editions of Polish Cinema for Beginners is an opportunity to fall in love with Polish cinema – this time, however, this opportunity will be very special. The program entitled ‘Polish Love’ of the season included five of the most beautiful love stories created by filmmakers from Poland. This coming Thursday at the New Horizons Cinema, viewers will be able to watch Janusz Morgenstern’s classic – ‘To Kill This Love‘ from 1972. Tickets available at kinonh.pl.
Madly in love with each other, Magda (starring Jadwiga Jankowska-Cieślak) and Andrzej (starring Andrzej Marzec) enter adult life. From the beginning, they get disappointed with not getting into university. While searching for new options for the upcoming year, they face the brutality and temptations of the world trying to be modern. The film is based on the script by Janusz Głowacki and without any redundant moralizing, sets out the situation of young people in 60’s/ 70’s; it is a love drama and social satire.

Somewhere out there are rockets being launched to the Moon. There are countdowns – three, two, one, zero… In love there’s also a time when you count down. The moment in which a space launch countdown reaches zero can be the beginning of a success. The counting down of the time of love ends with a zero – said the screenwriter. Martin Scorsese described ‘To Kill This Love’ as one of the Polish cinematographic masterpieces. Our guest – Kornelia Sobczak (awarded with the Contest for Krzysztof Mętrak Prize) – will discuss the film, cinema and social ambitions of the 70’s.
The screening of ‘To Kill This Love’ will take place on the 25th October at 7 pm in the New Horizons Cinema. Tickets can be purchased before the screenings at the ticket offices and at KinoNH.pl website. More information about the project can be found at:PolishCinema.com.pl and facebook.com/PolishCinema. You are invited to the Polish Cinema for Beginners by the Wrocław Film Foundation.
See you at the cinema!
