Eastern Film Academy - screening of the film "Na Sybir" ("Into the Sibir")
It is 1905. A revolution is being prepared in tsarist Russia. In the enslaved Poland, hope for freedom is awakening. A young Pole under the pseudonym "Sęp" (“Vulture”) undertakes independence activities. He is arrested and deported to Siberia for his involvement. His beloved countess Rena Czarska decides to accompany him secretly on his way to exile...
This is the history of the drama "Into the Sibir" from 1930, directed by Henryk Szaro. Outdoor photos were shot in the Bialowieza Forest. It is also interesting that the screenplay for the film was written by Wacław Sieroszewski - a well-deserved independence activist, a Yakut researcher and a Siberian exile. The outdoor scenes were filmed in the Białowieża Forest.
We invite you to the screening of the film "Into the Sibir" on 26 July 2018 at 17.00 at the Education and Exhibition Center of the Sybir Memorial Museum (26 Sienkiewicza Street in Bialystok).
The meeting will be conducted by the film expert from Bialystok – Adam Radziszewski.
Admission is free.
The Eastern Film Academy is a series of meetings addressed to proponents of education through cinemas. The idea of the undertaking derives from the discussion tradition of film clubs, when the movie image becomes a provocation to talk and exchange thoughts about the presented work and the subject matter raised by the director.
The project is co-financed by the Ministry of Culture and National Heritage of the Republic of Poland.
