Miasto Movie – a series of film screenings in Workshops of Culture
We give voice to the city. We give the city its voice(s).
Join us for a series of film screenings entitled “Miasto Movie”, whose punning Polish-English name (“Movie City”, “City Speaks”) refers to the city’s potential and metaphoric speech acts, to the city-themed articulation of the ever changing present. In the movies of our choice, the city is both the background and the protagonist. It is a setting to the stories told and a quiet witness to personal tales. It is also a lively site that is filled with cinemantic hustle and bustle. The city in our movies is a site where human problems and dramas fuse with great expectations, dreams and triumphs.
In our series, the city speaks a multitude of languages – it communicates with us through sounds and images, through individualised story-telling, through masterful cinematic languages of Terry Gilliam, Federico Fellini, Jim Jarmusch or Wong Kar Wai.
The city, as the subject of our screenings, has many faces – it is beautiful, fierce, radiant, melancholy but always intriguing and brimming with surprising stories to tell.
When: every Wednesday, 19:00
