Still image from the film Life Feels Good
This semester’s Polish film series provides fascinating insight into recent Polish cinema through the lens of two award-winning films which, in idiosyncratic ways, combine a sophisticated cinematic language with a focus on individual life stories. Boldly exploring a range of existential and social issues, the films invite a critical inquiry into a set of universal themes and concerns, including the complexities of identity negotiation, the mechanisms of social exclusion, and the issues of dignity and victimization. The series is sponsored by the IU Polish Studies Center, the Department of Slavic and East European Languages and Cultures, the Russian and East European Institute, and IU Cinema.
