Febiofest will present the Poland 44 section in cooperation with the Polish Institute in Prague

City 44

In cooperation with the Polish Institute in Prague, Febiofest will introduce the Poland 44 section on the occasion of the 70th anniversary of the end of World War II. The section will attempt to deal with the most tragic national experience of the 20th century through answering the question of whether film serves to strengthen or destroy national myths, and will portray the experience of war even to generations which haven't lived through it. Two views of the Warsaw Uprising of 1944 will be presented by Andrzej Wajda's Canal, and an eagerly awaited epic war film, City 44 by young Jan Komasa about a love story between young rebels against the backdrop of the destruction of Warsaw.

Jan Łomnicki's classic picture, Operation Arsenal, and Stones for the Rampart by Robert Gliński are adaptations of the same story of the history of the Scout anti-Nazi movement. The section is completed by Andrzej Munk's Eroica, a film that tears down national myths, and a unique contemporary pseudo-documentary consisting of colourised archival shots accompanied by a soundtrack, called Warsaw Uprising. City 44, Stones for the Rampart, and Warsaw Uprising will be screened in the Czech Republic for the first time. The films of the Poland 44 section will be introduced by a special guest, Jan Ołdakowski, the director of the Warsaw Uprising Museum, which initiated and produced the film Warsaw Uprising.
