"The Suburban Train" and "7xMoscow" in Galeria Zachęta


"The Suburban Train” dir. by Maciej Cuske and „7xMoscow” dir. by Piotr Stasik will be screened during Ryszard Kapuściński exhibition in Galeria Zachęta.
Photos shown at the exibition in Zachęta were taken by Ryszard Kapuściński in the Soviet Union in the 80s and 90s. Perestroika and quick political changes pushed Polish reporter and journalist to set off and as an result to write “Imperium”. This 3-part-book describes Kapuściński’s encounters with the Russian Empire: in 1939 in his hometown Pińsk, where – as a child - he witnessed first displacements to Siberia, between 1958-1967 when he travelled to countries of the former Soviet Union in the times of the biggest political changes and the beginning of the collapse of it. Last part of the book is a collection of author’s reflections.
The proposed film programme perfectly illustrates moments in the Russian history described by Kapuściński. Like photos shown at the exhibition, chosen documentaries and features are about people – witnesses of events, whose life was determined by history.
A hearty welcome!
