Trailer of “These daughters of mine”
The 10th season of the Polish Cinema for Beginners, called Family Matters, will focus on films about the Polish family – cheerful and bitter, old and contemporary. The comedy “These daughters of mine” tells the story of Marta (Agata Kulesza), a serial actress and a single mother, who isn’t very lucky with men. Her sister Kasia (Gabriela Muskała) has a layabout husband, a drug-dealing son and shares the house with her parents. When their health starts to decline, the sisters – although they cannot even look at each other – are forced to join forces. Can they start to like each other a bit? These Daughters of Mine, rich with funny dialogues and excellent acting, vividly creates an image of a contemporary Polish family.
Launched in 2012, Polish Cinema for Beginners is a review of the most interesting works of Polish cinema, held entirely in English language. The first Polish film programme addressed so directly to the non-Polish audience, appreciated by the Polish Film Institute in 2016 as the best educational project in Poland. During the previous editions, our audience watched, among others, “Mother Joan of the Angels” by Jerzy Kawalerowicz, “Man of Marble” by Andrzej Wajda or “In Darkness” by Agnieszka Holland.
The screening of “These daughters of mine”will take place on April 5, at 7:30 pm in the New Horizons Cinema. Tickets can be purchased before the screenings at the ticket offices and at KinoNH.pl website. More information about the project can be found at: PolishCinema.com.pl and facebook.com/PolishCinema. You are invited to the Polish Cinema for Beginners by the Wrocław Film Foundation.
