Adding some Polish flair

October 28, 2008

Pittsburgh Filmmakers is no stranger to the Polish Cultural Council of Pittsburgh (PCC). Past efforts have brought about such events as Polish poetry and music for Pittsburgher enjoyment. This year, we have teamed up with the PCC again in order to bring a new flavor to the festival. This collaboration will result in five Polish films being shown throughout the festival’s duration.

Popular Polish actor/director/writer Jerzy Stuhr will be present on November 12th in order to showcase his film Twists of Fate.

With over 30 years of experience doing everything from writing to acting to voice-overs for the Polish versions of characters like Donkey from Shrek, Stuhr brings his knowledge and culture to film-making (and the states) with this award-winning drama about crime and consequences. A young man with a less-than-altruistic conscience confronts a man with a haunting past. A full synopsis can be found on Fandango.
