Doctoral Students’ Film Club

Doctoral Students’ Film Club

The Culture Commission of the Jagiellonian University’s PhD Student Association invites you to attend the next edition of the Doctoral Students' Film Club, which will be held in the White Auditorium of the Cinema Under the Rams (Rynek Główny 27) on Thursday February 29th at 7:00 PM. This time, we will watch Paweł Maślona film Kos.

Kos, dir. Paweł Masłona, Poland 2023. In Polish with English subtitles.

 

Sharp as a saber, Kos is a captivating, action-packed, emotional, and modern universal tale of people who in the name of liberty and equality overcame each other’s prejudices and the differences that separate them.

 

It's the spring of 1794, and Poland is at boiling point. Tadeusz “Kos” Kościuszko has returned to his homeland and is planning on leading an uprising against the Russians, mobilizing both the Polish nobility and peasants in the process. He is accompanied by his faithful friend, the former slave Domingo. Armed with a search warrant, the ruthless Russian Rittmaster Dunin chases after Kościuszko, wanting to capture the general at all costs before he can spark a national rebellion.

At the same time, a young peasant, Ignac, a nobleman's bastard son, dreams of receiving his coat of arms and estate from his illegitimate father, Duchnowski, who before dying made reference to him in his will. After the father’s death, the boy must run from his half-brother Stanisław who does not want his father’s will to be executed. Ignac steals the will and has only two days to appear with it in court and prove his aristocratic title. When fleeing, he encounters Domingo. A strong sense of understanding is forged between the two men, even though they don't know one another’s languages. Together, they flee to the colonel's wife's manor house, where Kościuszko is hiding, waiting to negotiate with magnates.

 

Admission is free for doctoral students at the Jagiellonian University, although the number of participants is limited. We ask all who are interested in attending the event to send an email to filip.mazurczak@doctoral.uj.edu.pl by Wednesday February 28th. 

 

The introduction to the film will begin at 7:00 PM sharp. Please arrive on time.
