Images of History
Historical movies screenings: The Pilecki Institute and Warsaw Film School organize a film show once a month.
Today, the most heated debates on 20th century history center on well-known films. Over the past three years, we have been discussing such works – with their creators, directors, and also historians – at screenings held at the “Elektronik” Cinema in Żoliborz. We exchange impressions and reflect on the truths and myths of what we have just viewed, trying to determine underlying meanings and the impact that they may have on our world-view. In 2019 we have shown, among others, Cold War (directed by Paweł Pawlikowski), The Butler (directed by Filip Bajon), and Pardon (directed by Jan Jakub Kolski).
