ESCAPE TO THE SILVER GLOVE, dir. Kuba Mikurda, Poland 2021, 94’

Screening: 21.10., g. 19

Cinema Hall


The year 1975. After a few years of forced immigration, the young director Andrzej Żuławski returns to Poland. His situation in Poland is uncertain. What’s worse, his family disintegrates: his wife Małgorzata Braunek files for divorce. To strengthen his position Żuławski takes on a titanic task: he plans to make On the Silver Globe, a science fiction epic and the biggest film in the history of the Polish cinema. If he succeeds, he’ll win his place in the pantheon of the Polish directors. If he fails, his career in Poland will be over.
