Stories from Behind the Iron Curtain

Courtesy Embassy of Poland

On June 25th, the Embassy of Poland will be launching a free online movie retrospective - Stories From Behind the Iron Curtain.

In the coming weeks - once per week - the Embassy will be streaming several great, recent Polish films associated with Poland’s history between the years 1945-1989 and beyond through the following online platform: https://movies.pffmiami.com. These films are examples of artistically excellent and still-accessible and commercially successful genre films: you’ll be laughing and falling in love together with Sabina, the heroine of a retro comedy thriller (Reverse); weeping with Kamila, a young woman at the center of an impossible love triangle (Little Rose); and coming-of-age together with a young alternative rocker, Janek, and his love, Basia (All That I Love). The Embassy also hopes to surprise our audience with one more great movie - a crime thriller where contemporary events are entangled with an old, dramatic story from Poland’s communist past.

All details of the program are available at the Polish Film Festival in Miami website.

Discover these “Stories from behind the Iron Curtain”!

The event is FREE - all you need to do is to register at PFF Virtual Movie Theatre.
