About this event

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 next film up for discussion is the intriguing look at being an online influencer in Sweat,

Life for fitness guru Sylwia is non-stop. The division between professional and personal is one that she can little afford. After all, as an influencer, her followers demand to know about every moment of her existence. But though she has a huge following, Sylwia appears to have no one close to her, a fact made clear in a teary online confession about being single. Coming so close to a major national TV appearance, could this revelation threaten her profile? Or is it in fact just another stunt by someone who recognises that bad publicity is an oxymoron in our mediated age?

How It Works

Book your tickets to watch the film Sweat in our cinema and book a ticket to join the film talk if you would like to. Both can be found in the ‘Book Now’ link on this page.

PLEASE NOTE WE WILL NOT BE SHOWING THE FILM AT THE DISCUSSION ON WED 25 AUG, SO YOU NEED TO WATCH IT THE DAY BEFORE ON TUES 24 AUG, 7PM IN OUR CINEMA. 

Don't worry if you're no Zoom expert: it's very simple. We will send you a link by 5pm on the day of the event, and our friendly box office team will be available from 7.30pm to help you get online if you have any problem at all.

About Michael Brooke

Michel Brook will host the online talk. Michael is a freelance writer specialising in central/Eastern European cinema. He regularly hosts talks for the Polish Cultural Institute as well as being a contributor to the book Polish Cinema Now! (2010).

Sharp, perceptive, and ultimately ruthless when it comes to life under the yoke of social media. It's also smart enough never to regress into shallow, misogynistic finger-pointing.
4 Stars, Clarisse Loughrey, Independent
