About this event

Join us for a series of screenings and talks exploring gems of Polish cinema, hosted by Polish cinema expert Michael Brooke. We screen the film at Watermans’ cinema and then Michael hosts an online talk and discussion the following evening where you can come and hear more about the film, and share your own thoughts. The film is charged at usual Watermans’ ticket prices, and the online discussion is free. But please make sure you book tickets for both. 

The first film up for discussion is a bittersweet coming-of-age drama I Never Cry,  it is the second feature from one of the most awarded young Polish directors, Piotr Domalewski (Silent Night).

The film explores the cruelly ubiquitous loss of a parent through the eyes of a young woman, and prompts the viewer to reconsider their role in the lives of others.

Ola, a rebellious teenager from a small city, sets off to a foreign country on her own. It will turn out to be the trip of her lifetime, a trip into the unknown, on which she will try to reconnect with her estranged father. In Ireland, she will come to know a different world and meet people who will change her approach to life.

Programme supported by Film Hub London, managed by Film London. Proud to be a partner of the BFI Film Audience Network, funded by the National Lottery. www.filmlondon.org.uk/filmhub
