Screening of Polish Movie “Cold War”
FLORIDA – The American Institute of Polish Culture invites the public to attend the screening of Pawel Pawlikowski’s “Cold War” on Saturday, October 13
th, 4 p.m. at MDC’s Tower Theater Miami, 1508 SW 8th Street, Miami. Winner of the Best Director award at the 2018 Cannes Film Festival, Pawel Pawlikowski is back with Cold War, a decade-spanning romance that finds a star-crossed couple separating and reuniting throughout the years. The film starts in 1949 Poland where we meet Wiktor as he’s scouting the Polish countryside to put together a folk ensemble. There, he meets the fiery Zula and is instantly drawn in by her star potential. The two start an impassioned affair, but a variety of factors – not least of which are the turbulent time period and their ill-suited pairing – will both keep them apart and drive them head-on towards each other. Replete with sumptuous black and white cinematography and a wonderful soundtrack that flips between Polish folk music to jazz to rock ‘n’ roll, Cold War is a breathtaking feast for the senses and a punch to the gut for the soul. The American Institute of Polish Culture is sponsoring a reception for all attendees at MDC’s Tower Theater Miami following the screening . To purchase tickets, go to To receive a special discount for $2 off per ticket, use discount code: POLISHGEMS at checkout.
