Before the projection of “Westwood”, we invite you to watch a short film “RETURNING WAVE” (dir. Michał Wiraszko, 2017 , Film Freeway). The wave of music and the joy of youth is captivating with unprecedented force. Jarocin Music Festival, set Polish musical trends for many years. After 30 years of music and festival, which was freedom and pure energy, does it still have this extraordinary power? “Fala”(“The Wave”) – a film by Piotr Łazarkiewicz is one of the most important Polish musical documentaries. However, this film is not only about music, it is about society at the dawn of historical changes and about to awaken public awareness. Thirty years later, the heroes of “The Wave” again stand in front of the camera. Now, in the reality they imagined in 1985, they once again responded to the question “What is the future?”.
