Warsaw: A City Divided

Date: June 28, 2019
Time: 12:00 am - 12:00 am
Location: MOS, ul. Rajska 12

Fifteen years ago, a young Polish-Canadian filmmaker Eric Bednarski obtained an amateur 8mm film, 10 minutes’ footage of the life inside the Warsaw Ghetto, under the German occupation of the city during World War II. This gem is the only existing footage of the Warsaw ghetto that was not shot for Nazi propaganda purposes. Inspired by this footage, Eric created a movie that combines the 10 minutes from the Warsaw Ghetto with survivor testimony, interviews with architects and urban historians about the reconstruction of Warsaw, and research into the Nazis’ unrealized plans for post-war Warsaw. The movie premiered at this year’s Docs Against Gravity Film Festival in Warsaw; this will be its first showing in Kraków, with a Q&A with director Eric Bednarski after the film.
