DOMINO EFFECT | DOMINO EFFECT
dir. Elwira Niewiera, Piotr Rosołowski, Poland/Germany 2014, 76’ (in Russian with Polish subtitles)
Rafael - the minister of sports of an unrecognized country, and Natasha - a Russian opera singer, try living together in Abkhazia - a war-torn future-less country. Observing their difficult relations, we see life in a place marked by war and nationalism. The film portrays trapped people dreaming of peace, normality and happiness.
JOURNEY TO JAH | JOURNEY TO JAH
dir. Noël Dernesch, Moritz Springer, Germany/Switzerland/Jamaica/Italy 2013, 92’
(in German and English with Polish subtitles)
The forceful feature-length documentary Journey to Jah by Noel Dernesch and Moritz Springer catches the global phenomenon of crossing borders by documenting the experiences of integration in a foreign culture. The film follows the internationally acclaimed European musicians Gentleman and Amborosie, which found a new spiritual home within the reggae culture while Jamaican singer Terry Lynn takes the other direction integrating European styles into her music.
THE KIDNAPPING OF MICHEL HOUELLEBECQ | L'ENLÈVEMENT DE MICHEL HOUELLEBECQ
dir. Guillaume Nicloux, France 2014, 93’ (in French with Polish subtitles)
When best-selling and famously reclusive novelist Michel Houllebecq disappeared during his book tour in 2011, the rumors that spread regarding his whereabouts ran the gamut from suicide to, as the title suggests, a kidnapping. So endless was the speculation that we now have a perfectly perplexing film about it. Partly based on real-life events and starring Houellebecq himself, this fascinating and, despite its ominous-sounding title, wildly funny film blurs the line between fiction and documentary.
WELCOME TO NEW YORK | WELCOME TO NEW YORK
dir. Abel Ferrara, France/US 2014, 124’ (in English with Polish subtitles)
Mr. Devereaux is a powerful man. A man who handles billions of dollars every day. A man who controls the economic fate of nations. A man driven by a frenzied and unbridled sexual hunger. A man who dreamed of saving the world and who cannot save himself. A terrified man. A lost man.
WHAT EVER HAPPENED TO BABY JANE? | WHAT EVER HAPPENED TO BABY JANE?
dir. Robert Aldrich, USA 1962, 134’ (in English with Polish subtitles)
In a tale that almost redefines sibling rivalry, faded actresses Blanche and 'Baby' Jane Hudson live together. Jane was by far the most famous when she performed with their father in vaudeville but as they got older, it was Blanche who became the finer actress, which Jane still resents. Blanche is now confined to a wheelchair - Jane ran her over with the car while drunk, even though she has no memory of it - and Jane is firmly in control. As time goes by, Jane exercises greater and greater control over her sister. As Jane slowly loses her mind, she torments her sister going to ever greater extremes.

BOYHOOD | BOYHOOD
dir. Richard Linlater, USA 2014, 163’ (in English and Spanish with Polish subtitles)
Filmed over 12 years with the same cast, Richard Linklater's Boyhood is a groundbreaking story of growing up as seen through the eyes of a child named Mason (a breakthrough performance by Ellar Coltrane), who literally grows up on screen before our eyes. Starring Ethan Hawke and Patricia Arquette as Mason's parents and newcomer Lorelei Linklater as his sister Samantha, Boyhood charts the rocky terrain of childhood like no other film has before.

WARSAW 44 | MIASTO 44
dir. Jan Komasa, Poland 2014, 128’ (in Polish without subtitles)
A story of young Varsovians full of life and passion. They live their lives as if each day was to be their last. It's not, however, due to their bravado or recklessness - this attitude is a natural thing considering the reality they face. We get to know the movie's main characters shortly before the Uprising breaks out. They see their involvement in the underground movement not only as a patriotic duty, but also as an adventure, an opportunity to brag to their peers and impress girls.
