18.06.2019 Movie time

Biographies of the masters of photography, movies combining documents and computer animations, amazing personalities, fascinating stories, films-not-films of glued together memories and afterimages of our childhood….

We have prepared a program full of surprising and unusual film works of Polish and foreign directors. In the end, photography and film very often meet each other, and images wield the power to transfer the supernatural from the sphere of myths and dogmas into the pop-culture’s orbit.

Look what you can find in our program:
