THIS IS THE WOMEN’S WORLD
This is the Women’s World appeared in the LFF programme for the 100th anniversary of Polish women obtaining civil rights. It was supposed to draw attention to the problems that women from all around the world have to face every day. Their situation is not getting better and there are still many films being made about it. That is why we continue to select productions that bring up women’s problems, that for some are a foreign matter, and the everyday life for the others.
We finish issuing tickets 30 minutes before the screening or when there are no more left.
