SERIAL POLAND: Crime & Politics in New Polish Series
Am 8. und 9. März laden wir gemeinsam mit Serial Eyes und dem Polnischen Institut Berlin zu Serial Poland ein. An zwei Tagen wird es neue polnische Serien zu sehen geben und gemeinsam mit den Macher_innen diskutiert.
Fans of serialized storytelling have started looking all over Europe for new stories to binge-watch. And they have been rewarded handsomely. Recently, Poland has produced some of the most interesting series, many of which have been exported and broadcast outside the country.
High production value and a distinguished look are matched with stories that follow as well as defy the universal conventions of crime. At the same time, these stories are genuinely local, rooted in impressive rural landscapes (Raven. So Dark in Here) or in the recent past (Rojst), and comment in their own distinctive ways on the contemporary socio-political situation (Blinded by the Lights, The Artist).
Serial Poland presents a selection of new high-end series, which have not yet found their way to the German public. We will discuss with the series’ makers what themes inspire them, what social relevance series have in times of their growing circulation, and how the Polish public has responded to these shows.
The entire event is free of charge and held in English. Screenings in original language with English subtitles.
