Madison Polish Film Festival: Green Border (November 5)

In anticipation of the 2023 Madison Polish Film Festival, UW-Madison Polish Studies presents a free and open-to-the-public screening of Green Border (2023), Agnieszka Holland’s latest—and perhaps most controversial yet—film. The Polish-Czech-French-Belgian co-production, which won the 2023 Special Jury prize at the Venice Film Festival, takes a closer look at the ongoing border crisis between Poland and Belarus in four languages: Polish, English, French, and Arabic. While recently released, the film caused much political controversy in Poland, with government officials openly criticizing it for negatively portraying the country and accusing the director of an attack on uniformed border officers.

This special event will take place on Sunday, November 5, 2023.
