Screening of the film FLIGHT followed by a meeting with directors Anna Zakrzewska and Lukasz Ronduda
In Polish only
Awarded the Golden Lions at the 2021 Polish Film Festival in Gdynia for Fears, Łukasz Ronduda is returning with his new film, this time alongside director Anna Zakrzewska. Flight is a portrait of Roman Stańczak, legendary performer and sculptor of the 90s and source of inspiration for the alumni of the famed Kowalnia studio of Warsaw’s Academy of Fine Arts, including Pawel Althamer, Katarzyna Kozyra and Artur Żmijewski. Stańczak has been exploring ways to kill his inner bourgeois, making him the most uncompromising artist of his generation. But being a true rebel comes with a cost. Why did he disappear off the face of the earth? After decades of absence, Stańczak gets a chance to reemerge in the art world – he is asked to prepare the Polish pavilion for the 2019 Venice Biennale. Torn and conflicted, he has to also face the damage in his personal life.
