The National Museum in Krakow and the Wisława Szymborska Foundation are launching a series of film screenings of documentaries devoted to Wisława Szymborska. They also plan to hold monthly meetings with people who knew Wisława Szymborska in person. In October, they would like to invite you to John Albert Jansen’s documentary Koniec i początek – spotkanie z Wisławą Szymborską [The End and the Beginning – A Meeting with Wisława Szymborska] of 2011. The film is a unique perspective of the Dutch director, John Albert Jensen, on the Polish poet. Jansen portrays Szymborska in the privacy of her home and in company of her loved ones. In the film, Ewa Lipska, Andrzej Wajda, Marta Wyka, professor Andrzej Szczeklik and many others talk about the Nobel prize winner.
In the film, Szymborska’s poems are read not only by her friends, but by the poet herself, while Nothing Twice is performed by singer Kora Jackowska.
The cycle will begin as soon as October 15th. Due to limited audience space, the film will be screened on three consecutive Tuesdays.
The screening will take place in the Szołayski House – a division of the National Museum in Krakow (plac Szczepański 9) within Szymborska’s Drawer – an exceptional exhibition devoted to the poet.
See you on Tuesday, the 15th of October, at 4.30 p.m.
Entrance is free of charge. Due to a limited audience space, we kindly request visitors to pick their free entrance tickets available at the cashier’s desk of the Księgarnia Młoda bookstore in the Szołayski House.
