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.
