European Art Cinema Day 2018

3. EUROPEAN ART CINEMA DAY
Sunday, October 14, 2018
Kino Pod Baranami

Sunday, October 14, marks the celebration of 3rd European Art Cinema Day in Poland and over 40 other countries. Once again Kino Pod Baranami joined forces with a group of 70 arthouse cinemas in Poland, which offer special screenings for those, who appreciate artistic European films. Let’s celebrate cinema! 

 

On this occasion Kino Pod Baranami invites all filmgoers for a preview screening of an extraordinary film Another Day of Life - a moving international co-production based on a book by a renowned Polish reporter Ryszard Kapuciski about the civil war in Angola just months before the country gained its independence in 1975. Aiming to show the reality of war on one hand and to honor the survivors on the other, Damian Nenow and Raúl de la Fuente combined documentary material with animation. Another Day of Life got enthusiastic reviews after its premiere in Cannes and at the International Animated Film Festival in Annecy the film received a standing ovation and an Audience Award. The participants of this special screening will have a chance to walk a way with the book the film was based on. 

 

This celebration of artistic film will also be an opportunity to see magnificent Scandinavian pictures. The auditorium at Maopolska Garden of Arts programmed by Kino Pod Baranami will host a preview screening of a Danish thriller  The Guilty directed by Gustav Möller. This Audience Award winner at Sundance is a gripping story full of plot twists delivered in a very simple, but precise and efficient manner. Kino Pod Baranami will also present Becoming Astrid by Pernille Fischer Christensen, a fascinating biopic about Astrid Lindgren, an icon of children’s literature and author of Six Bullerby Children and Pippi Longstocking. Yet another film worth seeing that day will be the drama 22 July about the terrorist attack on Utøya island in 2011. British director Paul Greengrass, creator of United 93, together with brilliant Norwegian actors took up the challenge to tell the story of the biggest tragedy in the country’s history and its’ painful aftermath. The film stars Anders Danielsen Lie (Reprise), among many others.

 

The programme that day also includes extraordinary Polish film productions, awarded at the last Polish Film Festival in Gdynia. The audience at Kino Pod Baranami can choose between the Oscar candidate and Golden Lions winner Cold War by Pawe Pawlikowski, and Filip Bajon’s epic Silver Lions laureate The Butler. Also on screen receiver of a Special Jury Prize comedy 7 Emotions directed by master of its genre Marek Koterski, as well as the biggest sensation of the last few months in Polish cinema, Wojtek Smarzowski’s drama Clergy. Another must-see movie is Olga Chajdas’s debut Nina awarded with a Golden Claw in Visions Apart competition. All these films will be presented with English subtitles. 

 

Youngest viewers will celebrate European Art Cinema Day on Sunday morning by attending the screening of classic Polish animated films set. Afterwards children will take part in an art workshop “Mad Hatter’s Tea Party”.

 

European Art Cinema Day is a unique event, which first took place on October 9, 2016 as an initiative by CICAE (Confédération Internationale des Cinémas d'art et d'essai) together with Europa Cinemas network. The project’s aim is to celebrate arthouse cinema as a medium, as well as a venue without which the shared artistic experience would not be possible. #ArtHouseCinemaDay

Based on the book by legendary Polish war reporter Ryszard Kapuciski, the films tells a story of his suicidal journey across Angola, when he was faced with situations and events which forced him to reevaluate his approach to his work and life in general. It is the dramatic account of the three months Kapuciski spent in 1975 in Angola at the beginning of its decades’ long civil war. The film is a combination of narrative animation capturing the past events and visions of war together with documentary scenes complementing the story in a suggestive and emotional way.
