The National Museum in Krakow and the Wisława Szymborska Foundation would like to invite everyone to a series of screenings of documentary films about Wisława Szymborska. Once a month, meetings with people who knew Wisława Szymborska have also been planned.
In November, a documentary directed by Swedish director Lars Helander will be screened. The film is a part of a series about Nobel Prize winners, prepared by the Swedish television. In Helander’s film, Wisława Szymborska talks about how her life changed after she received the Nobel Prize in Literature, about her war experiences, romantic moments, literary beginnings, her friendships, fascination with jazz, love of old postcards, and other passions, as well as the meaning of Krakow as an artistic centre.
Due to limited space, the film will be screened on three consecutive November Tuesdays: on the 5th, the 12th, and the 19th of November. The screening will take place at the Szołayski House – a Branch of the National Museum in Krakow (pl. Szczepański 9) in the space of “Szymborska’s Drawer” – a unique exhibition dedicated to the Poet.
The first screening will take place on the 5th of November at 4:30 p.m.
Admission to the screening is free. Due to a limited number of places, please pick up the tickets in advance. They are available at the cash desk at the Księgarnia Młoda bookstore in the Szołayski House.
A documentary, 29 min, 1996.
