Cinema Pod Baranami and All In UJ Association invites English-speaking audience to a screening of digitally remastered Polish film The Promised Land (Ziemia obiecana). The movie by famous Oscar-winning Polish director, Andrzej Wajda, will be shown with English subtitles. The screening will take place on Thursday, November 27, at 6 p.m.

The Promised Land - nominated for an Academy Award for best foreign language film - was included into Martin Scorsese Presents: Masterpieces of Polish Cinema - a series of restored classic Polish films (spanning the period from 1957–1987) touring the U.S. and Canada, opening at the Film Society of Lincoln Center in New York in February 2014. Organised and curated by Martin Scorsese, one of the most recognised and respected filmmakers in the world, the series is the largest presentation of restored Polish cinema to date.

To watch it along (..) Wajda’s The Promised Land is not only to understand the dramatic changes that Poland underwent as it moved from an agrarian to an industrialized society in the early 20th century, but also to witness the country’s lost customs and traditions.
Ela Bittencourt, Los Angeles Review of Books

Kinoklasyka is a series of the best and most important Polish films from some of Poland’s most accomplished and lauded filmmakers after digital reconstruction, presented with English subtitles.

dir. Andrzej Wajda, Poland 1974, 170’ (in Polish with English subtitles)

Promised Land was nominated for an Academy Award for best foreign language film.

Adapted from Nobel Laureate Władysław Reymont’s classic 1897 novel, The Promised Land is the story of three friends united in their ruthless pursuit of fortune. With stunning camerawork and sumptuous design, Wajda depicts the explosive energy of a world being transformed by rampant industrialisation.

Wajda’s lavish epic is a wry, incisive, shocking and elegantly realized Dickensian tale of greed, human cruelty, exploitation and betrayal.
