The clash of social orders and moral norms leads to boundless love and a great will to live.

Europe was experiencing a nightmare of World War I, also known as the Great War, because hardly anyone could think of the scale of conflict in the modern world. The fictionalized historical document is devoted to German attacks with chemical weapons over Rawka and Bzura. The originator and implementer of the concept of using combat gases was a scientist and Nobel Prize winner Fritz Haber.

Paris is not only the Eiffel Tower or the Champs-Élysées. It is also a concrete suburb that is a powder keg. One seemingly trivial event can be the spark which ignites the fire of the revolution. A provincial policeman moves to the capital to join the Montfermeil Anti-Crime Brigade. He discovers spheres of influence, full of constant tension, divided among gangs. Vibrating, tight shots follow the clashes between groups. Director Ladj Lye’s full-length debut, which has a para documental aesthetic, was this year’s French candidate for an Oscar in the Best International Feature Film category.

The inevitable cost of urban expansion for the family of eleven is a loss of a roof over their heads. For twenty years they lived in perfect harmony with nature in the Danube Delta on the outskirts of Bucharest. Their natural environment, where they functioned according to the rhythm of the seasons and fished with bare hands is transformed into a national park.

A completely absorbing art. The art, which is hope. The art, which is the sense of life. It is both work and self-expression. Just as important is what we are working on as the way we relate to the world through creativity. German documentary filmmaker Sabine Herpich observes disabled artists, who work at the Mosaik art studio in Berlin. Initially, the studio was one of the workshops, where everyday objects were created for money. Now art objects from Mosaik are present on the international art market. Herpich’s film focuses on works of art itself, the creators’ disability is secondary.

The script was based on Cezary Harasimowicz’s “Jerzy” and inspired by real event: a group of hooligans pushing a man out of a speeding train. Through family history and ordinary, even plain situations into which the drama is woven, the director shows something deeper – the complexity of the characters, a combination of cowardice and guilt. Robert Więckiewicz, who plays the role of the main protagonist, usually associated with strong and decisive characters, this time creates a character full of doubts, nuances, complexes.

Loneliness in two – a strange, ambiguous relationship that links the travelling showman and strongman Zampano (Anthony Quinn) and his helper, simple-minded, honest and naive Gelsomina (Giulietta Masina), sold to Zampano by her family. They wander together to perform on village squares: Zampano breaks the chains on his chest and Gelsomina accompanies the shows and collects donations. A wise, beautiful film, a masterpiece! “La strada” has influenced and continues to influence many filmmakers and audiences around the world in an unprecedented way. Innovative at the time of the premiere – Fellini abandoned Italian neo-Realism and stops asking questions about the world order in the social dimension. Using magical realism, symbols and metaphors, he seeks the meaning of life that people give to their existence.

The family story told in the film is set in a specific political and social context – in 2011, seven months after the revolution in Tunisia. During the holidays, 11-year-old Aziz is seriously injured by a terrorist ambush. A liver transplant is the boy’s only chance to rescue. The results of the hospital’s tests will reveal a hidden family secret. Far from moral judgment or condemnation, Barsaoui shows the clash of modernity and tradition, the redefinition of the concepts of paternity and motherhood, the evolution of social roles and, in the human dimension, the issues of second chance and forgiveness.

The 20th century was a period of two great totalitarian systems, whose murderous actions cost lives millions of victims. Just as Adolf Hitler and Nazi Germany are still the embodiment of evil to this day, the cruelty of the Stalinist period escape of the general awareness. Only the Ukrainian Holodomor – the Great Famine of the 1930s. cost the lives of four to five million people. A young, idealistic but also full of doubts Welsh journalist Gareth Jones sets off for the USSR to see for himself the course and results of the great processes of economic and social change in the Soviet Union. He is entering into next circles of hell, and his publications are unheard of neither in the UK nor in the world. Based on the findings of Jones’ journalistic investigation, the allegorical “Animal Farm” by Georg Orwell was written.

The debate about the refugee crisis, one of the greatest global tragedies of recent years, is predominantly black and white. The Danish director introduces nuances to this discussion, creating a film “a vaccine against generalization”. “Love Child”; is as much a film about love as about the forced migration of an Iranian family. She portrays well educated, English-speaking people, Leila, Sahand and their son Mani, fleeing persecution for moral reasons. She has been documenting them for six years, recording scenes from everyday life, but also accompanied by the camera at breakthrough moments.

Big Animal was meant to be the feature debut of excellent director Krzysztof Kieślowski. However, during the communist era in Poland, there was no permission for such a film. The script found after Kieślowski’s death was developed by Jerzy Stuhr, who directed and played the main role in “Big Animal”. The result is a poetic, metaphorical film that deals with the issue of tolerance, otherness and even love for one’s neighbour. The hero, a bank clerk, together with his wife, a kindergarten teacher, take care of an abandoned camel. They are raising the opposition of the whole town and alone they are facing increasingly bizarre accusations against the animal.

The themes of the Balkan Wars, the conflict in the Middle East, the Iranian revolution and fascism are transformed by the artists into unique artworks, while at the same time being a strong political and socially important statement. The director portrays delicate, sensitive women, yet full of power and strength: Marina Abramović, Sigalit Landau, Shirin Neshat and Katharina Sieverding.

The letters, cut out from this magazine, were used in a death threatening anonymous letter to a pharmacist in a small Sicilian town. There are only three L’Osservatore Romano subscribers in the area, and the next day the pharmacist dies on a hunt.

Elio Petri’s screenplay, for which he was awarded in Cannes (1967), was based on the motifs of Leonard Sciascia’s famous novel. Petri was one of the first Italian directors to show the close links between politics, the Church and mafia.

Climate change is a key challenge for our civilization. The progressive degradation of the environment is causing humanitarian crises, armed conflicts and migration waves. One of the solutions for this situation is the “Great Green Wall” – 8000 kilometers long belt of trees, planted on the outskirts of the Sahara across the entire African continent. The aim is to rebuild the natural environment, to stop climate change and to build a future for the local people. This huge project is followed by the Malian activist and musician Inna Modja.

For the Swiss filmmaker, teddy bear, the memory of a faithful childhood companion, evolved into a fascination with the real bear – an unusual, mythical animal. Droux accompanied by David Bittner, a biologist and bear researcher is going to Alaska, the universe of wild grizzlies. The film is a record of the search for a pair of animals, the male Ball and his great love, Luna. The awakening Arctic summer is the scene of bloody male fights and dramatic attempts to survive the young. In the Droux lens shows the monumental beauty of one of the last wild corners of North America, where it is easier to get a bear’s footprint than a human foot, which is also full of emotional closeness.

The director, chose a distant part of the world, not only geographically but also mentally. The Czukocki Peninsula is located far from the tourist trails, monochromatic, in dim colours, still with a bust of Lenin in the middle of place. However, the inhabitants of Lorino: Inuit, Russians and Chuckles, struggling with everyday life and harsh climate have a common, quite bloody ritual. The community-wide whale hunting used to be strongly religious in the past. Today, economic considerations prevail – majestic mammals allow them to survive.

“While playing, I can see. I’m healthy until I play” – was saying about his music Mietek Kosz, almost completely forgotten Polish jazz artist. He was born in a small village and lost his sight in the age of twelve. Music become a remedy for illness. The director, Maciej Pieprzyca said: ‘Mietek’s life was indeed a dramatic adventure, full of touching, funny and tragic moments. It was like his music – a great improvisation, a mixture of bitterness and sadness, joy and humor, love and passion’. Mietek Kosz was like Icarus – he achieve stars, but fell from height into oblivion. And once again we can admire outstanding performance by Dawid Ogrodnik, who plays main protagonist.

Now Carlo, an out-of-the-box, broke and barely viable himself Italian, faces the challenges of parenthood. The clash of worldviews and explosions of emotions, but also the whole spectrum of feelings will accompany them during the holiday break at the beach house.

In contemporary Iran, killing is institutionalized, the death penalty remains in place and responsibility for the execution is spread over many people. But that doesn’t make the title evil disappear. Rasoulof tells four stories, connected by a common denominator – a mystery and a tough choice. The stories of four very different characters and the decisions they have to make are an important statement by the Iranian director against the death penalty. The silent dramas make up a powerful morality play about the limits of freedom and the consequences of choice. Film was awarded Golden Berlin Bear in 2020.

Jakub Hejna and Helena Třeštíková looked through more than a hundred archival materials, many of which had not been published before, and they made a story of Forman’s life, full of twists and turns, of his courage and talents. The narrator is the director’s son, theatre actor Petr Forman.

Associated so far with a strong, hard rock sound, he recorded a country music album and presented it to the audience in Nashville. The film is an intimate portrait of a musician looking for his personal and artistic fulfilment.

Brittany, 1770. A part of the dowry of the rich noblewoman Heloise is her portrait. But it has to be painted in secret from its heroine. She also does not know the details of her own planned marriage. An emancipated painter Marianne, who is supposed to pretend to be her lady for company, is hired to create the portrait. Stormy, flamboyant, painterly images. Hidden emotions, which explode with full strength. The protagonists of the film are challenging their times. The director does not give clear answers, what can be first taken as a melodrama turns out to be a full of tension thriller and switching points of view reveal further concepts.
