INFORMATION FOR CINEMAS:
Dear Sir/Madam, We would like to present a documentary feature for your consideration as part of your repertoire: Out of the Limelight, by director and writer Rafael Lewandowski, the creator of the iconic film The Mole, laureate of such awards as the 36th Festival of Polish Feature Films in Gdynia and the 35th International Film Festival in Montreal, holder of the Polityka weekly’s Passport for 2011, and recipient of the Order of Art and Literature from the French Ministry of Culture. The Polish premiere of the film took place on 26 September 2017 at the Atlantic cinema in Warsaw, as the first film to inaugurate the celebration of the 100th anniversary of Poland regaining its independence. We hope you will be interested in the film.
Out of the Limelight, 86 minutes long, relates the life of Zygmunt Lubicz-Zaleski, a poet, writer, translator, musician, critic of music, art and literature, doctor of philosophy, and journalist who, forced to emigrate, chose to live in France, where he taught and promoted Polish language and culture. Engaged in the Polish Resistance in France during World War II, he was arrested and deported by the Nazis to Buchenwald. After the war, he supported Polish refugees and was appointed president of the Welfare Society for Poles. The film presents the story of this unjustly forgotten Pole and the various faces of patriotism, focusing on the significance of family traditions.
The film is distributed in the DCP or Blu-Ray/DVD formats. Along with the copy, we provide posters in the B1 format and leaflets in the A6 format.
