15, February at 7 p.m., there will be a screening of the film KOS awarded with the Golden Lion at the 48th PFF in Gdynia. A must-see for fans of Polish cinema. After the screening meet the filmmakers.

KOS, directed by Paweł Maślona, is a story about Tadeusz Kościuszko, but not the one known from history books. The film was awarded Golden Lions at the 48th Polish Feature Film Festival in Gdynia, among other prizes.
Film synopsis: The atmosphere is tense in Poland in the spring of 1794. General Tadeusz "Kos" Kościuszko (Jacek Braciak) returns to the country and plans to start an uprising against the Russians, calling for the Polish nobility and peasants to take part in it. Kościuszko is accompanied by his loyal friend, former slave, Domingo (Jason Mitchell). Paweł Maślona rejects the stereotypes of a school reading about the hero Kościuszko in favour of a Tarantino story in the spirit of Gombrowicz and Munk, and the director himself says that it is a film about a "broken community" that can be read today.

Jacek Braciak plays the title role and the cast includes Jason Mitchell, Robert Więckiewicz, Bartosz Bielenia, Agnieszka Grochowska, Piotr Pacek and Andrzej Seweryn.

KOS was the winning film of the last edition of the Polish Feature Film Festival - it won the most important award - Golden Lions, as well as, among others, awards for supporting actor (Robert Więckiewicz), for editing, and make-up. It is also a winner of the POLITYKA PASSPORT Award in the FILM category.

KOS will be screened at our cinema on 15, February, (Thursday) at 7 p.m. After the screening of the film, we invite you to a meeting with the filmmakers - Michał A. Zieliński - the originator and screenwriter of the film, and Piotr Pacek, our graduate, an actor playing the villain - Stanisław Duchnowski, Ignac's half-brother.
