After 2 years, 270 screenings and 8000 audience members, the Liverpool Small Cinema, the volunteer-run community venue, will be closing at the end of April. It means that sadly it will be the last opportunity to see a polish film on Victoria Street.
The film which we have chosen for you is “The Last Family”!
The film follows Zdzislaw Beksinski (Andrzej Seweryn), a painter whose unique brand of dystopian surrealist paintings gain him notoriety as a contemporary artist. Living with his wife Zofia (Aleksandra Konieczna) and neurotic son Tomasz (Dawid Ogrodnik), Zdzislaw struggles to maintain control as Tomasz’s violent outbursts and suicidal threats begin to worsen. Things start to look up when Tomasz becomes a radio presenter, but trouble is never far away as the battle to keep him from harming himself begins to take its toll on his despairing parents.
We would also like to invite you to see “The first love”, the documentary film directed by Krzysztof Kiwslowski. The screening will take place at 3pm.
"The last family"
