At 12.45, we will have a chance to see one of the award winners from this year's Berlinale, "A Fantastic Woman" (KNH 1), directed by Sebastián Lelio. Just 15 minutes later, cinephiles are invited to KNH 5 for "Mad Love". One of the films in this year’s retrospective, it is a masterpiece of modern cinema of the 1960s. "Scaffolding" will be shown in KNH 8 at 13.15 as part of the review of New Israeli Cinema. Everyone is invited to a Q&A with the filmmakers following the screening. Also at 13.15, there will be a screening for younger audiences of "Double Trouble" (KNH 9). Director Marta Karwowska and actors Roma Gąsiorowska and Piotr Głowacki will be in attendance. Then we will have a chance to see "Papirosen", a portrait of a contemporary four-generation family from Buenos Aires. The screening will take place at 13.30 in KNH 4. Fans of the theater are invited to the Arsenal parking lot for a performance by the Polish Theater at 14.00. At 15.45, Wiktoria Szymańska's intriguing 13 Summers Underwater will be shown in KNH 2. There will be a Q&A with the filmmakers after the screening. At the same time, KNH 3 will be showing A Quiet Dream, a dreamlike film indeed, straight from South Korea. At 16.00, Complete Secrets will be hosting a workshop called "Better Come and Write Poetry" sponsored by the magazine Przekrój. The class will take place at ul. Przejście Garncarskie 2, next to the Market Square. "A Man of Integrity" will be showing 15 minutes later in KNH 9. This Iranian production was an award winner at Cannes this year. At 19.00, we will have a chance to see Robin Campillo's angry "120 Beats Per Minute", a portrait of rebellious youth from the 1990s, which is also the closing film at this year's festival. At the same time, KNH 4 will be showing "A Brief Excursion", a surreal Croatian tribute to youth. At 19.15, it will be worth your while to head over to KNH 7 for "Millenials", a portrait of contemporary thirtysomethings from two different perspectives. And you certain will not want to miss "All These Sleepless Nights" (KNH 6) at 22.00. Michał Marczak's film from last year continues to evoke strong reactions from audiences. The day will come to a close with a screening of the wonderful and unhurried Paterson, the latest production by Jim Jarmusch.
