Ladies and Gentlemen,
You are holding in your hands the latest edition
of the ‘New Polish Films’ directory, published by
the Polish Film Institute, announcing the upcoming
season in Polish cinema. We present here selected feature
films, animations and shorts. It is encouraging that many
of them are debuts and second films. We will soon be
able to see them in competitions and prestigious sections
of international film festivals.
In 2012, the Polish audience clamoured for ambitious
and artistically valuable cinema. More than 1.2 million
viewers for the Oscar-nominated In Darkness
by Agnieszka Holland, and nearly 1.5 million viewers
in Leszek Dawid's second film are a cause for joy
and satisfaction. Hundreds of thousands of spectators
at films by Wojciech Smarzowski, Małgorzata Szumowska
and Piotr Trzaskalski show that it is the beginning
of a lasting trend. We are impatiently looking forward
to their next projects.
Contemporary Polish cinema is very varied. Its creators
are looking for answers to niggling questions, often
addressing important social issues in a historical context.
These questions concern timeless and universal topics
– tolerance, human rights, respect for the different.
I believe that with this ‘New Polish Films’ publication,
you will discover in Polish cinema something intriguing,
surprising and inspiring. I warmly invite you to see those
films that will help you become friends with Polish
cinema for a longer time.

General Director of the Polish Film Institute

a Warsaw-based corporation, where he needs to deal with a boss
who has no morals.

Tygrys, a forty-year-old film director, lives life to the fullest, certainly not refraining from alcohol and cocaine. He
has many wonderful friends and an endless array of adoring women. But whenever he sobers up, his buddies
are gone, and the women prove to be reluctant to give him unconditional love; all that remains is a throbbing
hangover. His alcoholic binges eventually land him in a court of law, and then he no longer has a choice: he has
to go into therapy. He goes to his anti-alcohol treatment, hoping to receive a solution that will make all his
problems disappear. unfortunately the therapist staff has only one goal: to scam the poor patients for as much
money as possible. Tygrys decides to stand up for the rest of his group.

Natalia is a 17-year–old mom. But she’s not your stereotypical teenage mother; she had her son Antek simply
because she wanted to. She decided to have a baby because it’s cool to have a baby. Her own little person,
someone to buy designer clothes for.
But why did Natalia really have Antek? Does the answer lie in the online blogs where teenagers write about
their dreams? They want to have a kid so that somebody would finally really love them. And so that they too
would have somebody to love.

A chance meeting of two very similar-looking teenagers leads to the discovery of a mixup from years ago.
When the story of two children switched at birth came to light several years ago, it shook public opinion to
the core. The most shocking words came from doctors who warned that “there might be more children like this.”
These events inspired the story told in Deceived.

Father ploughing the supermarket with oxen, the plough tearing into the tiles; a bikini-clad girl seducing the hero on
the snowy slopes of the Matterhorn; Niagara Falls plunging onto the altar of the cathedral, and a forest full of dead
souls. These are the visions of Adam, a poet, who lost the love of his life and his best friend in a car accident.
A national tragedy unfolds on top of his personal drama. The year is 2010. Poland witnesses flooding, mass fires,
mudslides, and the crash of the President’s plane with top government officials on board.
Adam quits his job as a lecturer of symbolic literature and takes on the position of a supermarket cashier. But all
he really wants is to sleep; sleep allows him to escape the painful reality. In these dark times, he focuses on
reading Dante’s “Divine Comedy”. Passages from this book help Adam to make sense of his everyday life.

At first glance they have nothing in common – their background,
sensibility, values, life experience, even language are all different
(she uses an educated vocabulary, while he often speaks
in Silesian dialect). They are brought closer by loneliness
and feeling of detachment from the hostile world of new
capitalism. Left to depend on one another, they find emotions to
share. All the prejudice is gone; it is replaced by mutual fondness
and understanding, if not a deeper emotional bond that blossoms
in the autumn years of their lives.

A drama about the search for one’s identity and making rash decisions.
The happy-go-lucky main protagonist is a young man raised by two women. His financial security was provided
first by his mother, and now by his wealthy wife. He himself hasn’t really matured enough to be a husband, never
mind a father. But when he discovers a family secret, he will have to learn who he is and what is really important
to him.

The capital of Czechoslovakia, 1953. Police captain Hakl leads an investigation in the case of a night-time
burglary at the Jewish kahal. With his extensive experience in criminal cases, Hakl is convinced that solving
the case will be an easy task. He is able to establish the circumstances in which the crime took place, which
reveal a secondary motive behind the crime. He begins to understand that the burglary launched a political
provocation involving the secret police forces of the Soviet union and Czechoslovakia.

A fascinating spy film, based on real events. Colonel Ryszard Kukliński, deputy chief of operations of the General
Staff of Polish Armed Forces, party to all the secrets of the Warsaw Pact, became a CIA informant and thus
a key player (albeit invisible) in the Cold War. Between 1971 and 1981, Kukliński provided the West with over
40,000 pages of secret documents, including plans for introducing martial law in Poland.
The screenplay was written based on previously-unreleased materials from the archives of Poland’s Institute
of National Remembrance, CIA documents, and accounts of surviving eye witnesses, including David Forden,
Kukliński’s CIA handler.

A film about the coincidental meeting of people who, for reasons of their own, dislike following trails set by
others. They want to seek happiness on their own terms, not those dictated by anyone. This is also a film about
love, or rather about what to do to protect ourselves from love, because love can be greedy, selfish, and no good
can come of it. Love contradicts independence, therefore it couldn’t possibly be an ingredient in the recipe for
happiness planned by our protagonists.
A film about whether it’s possible to steer clear of love with just little crushes, or does it always have to end
in an avalanche when real emotions are involved.

poems and the first to have her work translated into Polish and officially published. This was all possible thanks

The story of an artist obsessed not only with his own death, but also the death of art resulting from the fact
that its value in today’s world is determined by the market or by institutional manipulation.
The role of Oskar Dawicki is played by Warsaw-based artist Oskar Dawicki. The protagonist balances between
being himself and playing himself, between reality and performance, between life and art.
However, The Performer is certainly not a biopic.

the secret of Westerplatte
Tajemnica Westerplatte
COLOUR, 118 MIN
POLAND – LITHUANIA 013
At 4:45am on September 1, 1939, the German battleship “Schleswig-Holstein” fired at Westerplatte, thus
beginning the Second World War.
The Polish crew of the Westerplatte military base was supposed to last twelve hours. Instead, they defended
their base for seven days. This is the story of the struggle of a handful of soldiers against German forces that
outnumbered them by far.
A film about the tragedy of war, and about the choices made in the face of mortal danger.

A four-year-old boy arrives at a women’s shelter dressed in a Spiderman costume. He’s with his mother Laura,
and with Tito, his little plastic dinosaur. They spend two days at the shelter, adapting to new rules
of cohabitation and coming across many discoveries. When Laura decides to leave the shelter and set out to
rebuild her broken family, she begins a whirlwind tour around the city, where previously familiar things now pose
a threat.
In this film, part-thriller and part-domestic road movie, strange characters and situation serve as triggers,
always reflected through the eyes of its young protagonist, for whom reality has unexpectedly turned into a true
mystery.

1965:
Exhausting auditions for a new stage play bring no effects: none
of the candidates for the female lead fit the role of a woman who
has a contract with a man, a contract that turns him into a slave.
Resigned, the director is about to exit the theatre when Vanda
bursts through the door. She appears insolent,
ill-mannered, desperate, and unprepared. Once Thomas
reluctantly agrees to give her a chance, the actress undergoes
a spectacular metamorphosis.

How could one man have such an impact on the modern
world? Walesa is an attempt at capturing
the metamorphosis of a simple man – from an electric
technician at the Gdansk shipyard who fought for labour
rights to a charismatic leader who awoke the desire for
freedom in millions of people and led to changes that
exceeded their wildest dreams.

The term ‘Yuma’ was coined in the early 1990s to describe shoplifting escapades of young people from border
towns to German shops.
With help from his friends, Zyga quickly rises to the position of the king of Yuma. He thrives in these
misdimeanors. Thanks to Zyga and his crew, the whole town takes a leap forward in the standard of living.
But the guys soon get in the way of the Russian mafia. And the German shop-owners have also had enough

POLAND 013
Busy with her career in a Warsaw-based
corporation, Celina hardly ever has time to
visit her hometown.
When she finally does, she ends up at
a rather peculiar funeral. Whose funeral?
That remains to be seen.
Friends and relatives from completely
different worlds come to the ceremony,
bringing together people who otherwise
never would have met.
Before and After conveys a message
of hope that not all goodbyes are forever.
It is a tragicomic tale of love and parting.

POLAND – SWEDEN 013
There are three of them: a woman and two
men. One day they meet on the roof
of a skyscraper. They are all there for
the same reason – they want to commit
suicide. Why? Because of their feeling
of helplessness against the rampaging
financial crisis.
A serious conflict unfolds among
the threesome. It turns out that they have
very different views on life after death.
Sarah is deeply religious, John is an atheist,
while Ben is agnostic and still on the fence.
The only way to find out who is right is to
make the Big Leap.

40- year-old Józef has few reasons to wake
up every day with a smile. The number
of women in his life is equal to the number
of friends: zero. His living space is limited to
about three square meters; that’s how
much room he has both at work (a parking
booth) and at home (a tiny room in his
mother’s flat). His situation gets even more
complicated when one day he is arrested
by two strange men in bad suits.

Twelve-year-old Panabi lives in a Warsaw
housing estate ruled by Bocian. Bocian is
the biggest thug and, as is usually the case,
has the prettiest girlfriend. As luck would
have it, Panabi’s brother falls in love with
Bocian’s girlfriend. Christmas is coming up,
which for Panabi means an impending
catastrophe.
A Christmas carol with a twist, set against
the backdrop of a typical Polish housing
estate; the film is loosely based on “Corby’s
Girl”, a short story by Etgar Keret.

Powrót
COLOUR, 3 MIN
POLAND 01
A Porter from Mewa Hotel is set
in communist times. Włodzimierz Zawada
is a porter at a workers’ hotel. He is a model
citizen, and his life is filled with daily rituals.
A seemingly mundane discovery
in the hotel corridor will crumble his whole
world and place him in a situation with no
easy way out.
A farcical crime story that reveals
the ambiguous doings of the communist
authorities.

Kuba and Michał are professional soldiers.
They want to leave their hometown
and raise enough money to start their own

in Afghanistan. They are deployed with
the fourth tour of the Polish peacekeeping
forces. When they return, they realize that
their hometown is no longer the place they
remember.
To War We Go! is loosely based on the true

Drop everything and just leave. Everyone
has had those thoughts at least once
in their life. It is at exactly such a crossroads
that we meet Józef K.
Józef arrives at the waiting room of an old
and remote train station. He waits for
a train that is to take him to a place where
he will begin a new and better life. But
there is no exit from this waiting room. It
becomes his prison, and his dreams
of departure are taken away by travellers
who got stuck here before him.

A film set in a world made from pieces

in the various nooks and crannies. The main
protagonist is Little Sailor, who is engrossed
in a fruitless search for the missing button
of his uniform. During his journey, he meets
various characters who are alarmed at
the appearance of a mysterious dragon
in their world. The dragon turns out to be
a caterpillar that eventually transforms
into a beautiful butterfly.
Look at your hand up close. Pick a tiny part,
no more than a centimetre. Stare at it for
a moment, until you begin to see
a landscape – when the vein turns into
a river or a tree, and the skin turns into open
space.

where laughter and all other forms

Even when reprimanded, beat,
and downtrodden, he still bursts out
laughing when it is least appropriate. Even
the most desperate efforts of his parents
and guardians cannot change that. But
when his infectious laughter brings a wave
of joy over the whole town, he suddenly
becomes the least joyful citizen of all.
A short and ironic tale about relationships.

respectively. Serious issues are handled
in a way that is symbolic and even
humorous.
The film was animated using picture
collage and object animation techniques;
animated objects include lighters, hair,
pieces of fabric, and random sundries.

A painter can often be a frail and helpless
human being; it’s a good idea to have his
activities supported by someone who
possesses almost divine powers. But what

view of the artist’s future career than the
artist himself?
Wings 3D attempts to bring the world
created in the paintings of Nikifor Krynicki
to life.
