Meetings with nearly 30 artists, a performance, a concert, and much more.
We're certainly not going to complain about a lack of meetings today. There will be three conversations with filmmakers in just in the first block: Olivier Laxe (Fire Will Come, 10:00), Isabella Eklöf (Holiday, 10:00), and Johann Lurf (★, 10:15). In the early afternoon, we encourage you to take part in Q&A sessions with Sara Dosa (The Seer and the Unseen,12:45), Hilal Baydarov (Birthday, 13:00), and Aistė Žegulytė (13:00), the director of Animus Animalis (A Story About People, Animals and Things).
We especially recommend a screening of Derek Jarman's cult film Blue at 13:15 and a meeting with the artists who prepared a theatrical interpretation of the British director's book: Rafał Matusz, the director of Chroma. Księga kolorów; actors Błażej Wójcik and Przemysław Kozłowski; and Paweł Świerczek, the co-writer of the script for the performance and the translator of Jarman's book.
In the afternoon, we will meet with Markus Schleinzer (Angelo, 15:45), Mark Jenkin (Bait, 16:00), and the creators of the short films presented in the second set of festival shorts (16:00): Marcin Filipowicz (Boys with Butterflies), Igor Kawecki (Eye of God), Maria Wider (Within Me), Adam Żądło (Cyborgy), and Daria Kasperek and Michał Modlinger (Breath). In the same block, we also recommend the Q&A with the makers of Sacavém: Júlio Alves (director) and Empar Casanova Plana (production).
In the evening, we'll have an opportunity to learn more about the work of Icelandic filmmaker Hlynur Pálmason (after a screening of A White White Day) at 18:45. Also at 18:45, we recommend a discussion with Albertina Carri, the subject of a retrospective this year (The Daughters of Fire, 18:45). At 19:00, Max Linz will discuss Music & Apocalypse, and Ena Sendijarević will answer the audience's questions after a screening of Take Me Somewhere Nice. Also in the evening (19:15), we invite you to a Q&A with Hiroatsu Suzuki and Rossana Torres after a screening of Green Belt and The Taste of Crème Brûlée. At 19:15 in the Lower Silesian Film Center, we will take another look at Kazimierz Kutz's cult film Salt of the Black Earth (everyone is invited after the screening to a discussion with film critics Piotr Czerkawski, Diana Dąbrowska, and Adam Kruk).
The art scene at the festival continues to go strong. From 15:00 to 18:00 today, you'll be able to see a performance of In Silence by Iza Chlewińska, co-author of this year's visual identity. The event is an accompaniment to the exhibition Inner Life: The Bump at the BWA Wrocław Studio gallery (there will be a curatorial tour at 18:00). We also recommend A Horizontal Panorama: Kodras at the TIFF Gallery and Albert Serra's multimedia installation Sun King at OP ENHEIM. At Centennial Hall, you can watch (and experience) the interactive exhibition Cabinet | Das Kabinett.
You'll be able to enjoy the sounds of Fortepiany Wolności on Market Square at 19:00, while Barbara (ul. Świdnicka 8b) will host a literary meeting prepared by Empik at the same time. This time, Michał Nogaś will host reporter Aleksandra Pezda, the author of Zdrowaś mario. Reportaże o medycznej marihuanie, on the subject of medical marijuana. Together, we will discuss (not) dealing with suffering, the fight against pain, and the many years of efforts on the part of individuals suffering from illness to legalize medical marijuana in Poland.
There will be a total retrospective of overly general filmmakers, as well as a meeting of DKF under the heading "Semantics of Erotica." Klub Komediowy will teach you how to talk about movies you haven't seen. And later? A good old beach high. Kuba HVZX will present fat bangers, a blend of rap and trap inspired by the work of Harmony Korine. This will take place at the Festival Club at Arsenal, of course.
