Cinestudio Theater Hartford, CT

This essential selection, individually chosen by Academy Award-winning director Martin Scorsese, features sixteen brilliant and rarely seen movies from Poland's best filmmakers. Each digitally re-mastered and restored film will screen for one show.
Masterpieces was conceived in 2011, when Martin Scorsese went to Lodz, home of the legendary Polish National Film School, to receive an award. Watching incredible films made from 1957-87, as Polish directors portrayed life in the brutal aftermath of World War II, to the stultifying oppression of Communism, to the move towards greater freedoms, Scorsese realized "I had to bring these films home with me."
"There are many revelations in the Masterpieces series, and whether you're familiar with some of these films or not, it's an incredible opportunity to discover the great power of Polish cinema, on the big screen in brilliantly restored digital masters." - Martin Scorsese.
