FKA’s Watch and Talk Polish Cinema is a unique opportunity to see and discuss classic Polish cinema in English language. Our first November feature is the Oscar-winning masterpiece by Paweł Pawlikowski – „Ida”.

Last but not least, it will be a fantastic opportunity to meet and interact with other English-speaking film lovers. We invite all foreign visitors, Erasmus students and locals who want to engage in this exciting project. Join us at the charming Nowe Kino Pałacowe for a remarkably inexpensive price of 7zł!

We’re opening the month of November with one of the most recent pieces in our catalogue. Nevertheless, ‚Ida’ is already celebrated as one of the most triumphant works in the history of Polish cinematography. It’s a poignant tale of a young woman on a journey to discover her roots and find her place in the somber wasteland of post-World War II Poland. This atmospheric, black-and-white masterpiece features a mesmerizing duet of actresses Agata Kulesza and Agata Trzebuchowska – who turns her onscreen debut into an enthralling performance. ‚Ida’ took the movie world by storm, winning the 2015 Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film. Year earlier it was selected the 2014 best film at European Film Awards and claimed the BAFTA award for Best Film Not in the English Language.
