Nov. 2018 – Magazyn Mowią Wieki WYDANIE SPECJALNE


      Numer Specjalny „Mówią wieki” 02/2018 pt. „Polskie dziedzictwo za granicą” Numer powstał we współpracy z Instytutem „Polonika”. We wstępie prof. Michał Kopczyński pisze: w ostatnich trzech stuleciach polskie dzieje tak się układały, że wielu Polaków znalazło się poza granicami kraju. Pozostały pamiątki po ich obecności. Często zapomniane, niekiedy celowo niszczone, stopniowo znikały z naszej pamięci kulturowej. To wydanie „Mówią wieki” to jeden z elementów przywracania owej pamięci!

Nov. 4 and Nov. 11 “Cold War / Zimna Wojna” at STL Film Festival


“Cold War” — from the director of “Ida,” winner of the Oscar® for Best Foreign-Language Film — is a passionate love story between jazz pianist Wiktor (Tomasz Kot) and singer-dancer Zula (Joanna Kulig), two people of different backgrounds and temperaments who are fatefully mismatched and yet condemned to each other. Set against the background of the Cold War in the 1950s in Poland, Berlin, Yugoslavia, and Paris, the film depicts an impossible love story in impossible times. “Cold War” premiered [...]
