The turbulent times have already taught us that if we have the opportunity to experience culture in person (albeit with some restrictions), it is worth taking advantage of it.
The theatrical event of the autumn will undoubtedly be the premiere of Woman and Life – a staging of Malina Prześluga’s text prepared by five Wrocław cultural institutions, which was inspired by last year’s women’s protests. You can find out more about this moving performance in the interview with the director of the show, Piotr Łukaszczyk, which opens this issue of “The Guide”. If you would prefer to spend the cold November evenings in front of a cinema screen, we have three film proposals for you in the first part of the magazine. The first one is the celebration of American independent cinema, i.e. the American Film Festival (Ula Śniegowska, the festival’s director, tells us about the its programme). The second one: Telegram from…, a new cycle in Barbara – presentations of film productions from the most remote corners of the world (announced in “The Guide” by the series curators: Adam Kruk and Lech Moliński).
The third event is a proposal for both cinema buffs and architecture lovers: this month, before it hits the Polish and international festivals, we will be able to watch the film (Un)usual Manhattan devoted to the iconic Wrocław complex designed by Jadwiga Grabowska-Hawrylak. On the pages of “The Guide”, white skyscrapers are adjacent to another architectural legend – Trzonolinowiec, which was portrayed for you by Joanna Plizga in the “Black Wroclaw” column.
For cultural recommendations for November, we asked actress Jolka Solarz-Szwed and visual artist Piotr Kmita. To the items selected by them, we are adding over 120 more, because that is how many events you will find in our autumn calendar. We wish you a very cultural November!
