KinoPolska – Guest: Karolina Bielawska

MÓW MI MARIANNA, 2015

The extent to which socio-political aspects are inscribed into the personal and vice versa is the theme of this KinoPolska double program put together by Karolina Bielawska.

MÓW MI MARIANNA (Call Me Marianna, K. Bielawska, Poland 2015, 13.12., with guest K. Bielawska) At the age of 40, Wojtek decides to live as a woman, fully aware of the consequences. In the face of much adversity, Marianna tries to create a new life for herself. Without resorting to any sort of clichés, Bielawska creates a portrait of a person who follows what he wants to be and is forced to move beyond the boundaries of society as a result. 

DRESZCZE (Wojciech Marczewski, Poland 1981, 14.12.: with an introduction by K. Bielawska) As the son of a people’s militia man, 13-year-old Thomas is sent to a communist reeducation camp. After Stalin’s death, the political climate changes and the boy returns to a family that he no longer comprehends. (mg)
