The Polish Film Spring in the Netherlands ready to blossom
by Dorota Hartwich
- Scheduled to unspool on 25 and 26 April, the event will honour director and actor Jerzy Stuhr
Delft, The Hague and Tilburg will play host to the seventh edition of the Polish Film Spring in the Netherlands, which is set to unspool on 25 and 26 April. The gathering has chosen to invite filmmaker and actor Jerzy Stuhr as a special guest, who will present his latest opus as director, Citizen (Obywatel) [+see also:
film profile], as the opening film.
Stuhr is known by Dutch film buffs in particular for his collaborations with his fellow countryman Krzysztof Kieslowski. Indeed, he acted in Three Colours: White and Camera Buff (for which he also co-wrote the dialogue). He also made a splash recently in We Have a Pope [+see also:

Also featuring on the menu of this edition of the Polish Film Spring are Gods [+see also:

The films will be on offer in three cinemas: the FilmHuis Lumen in Delft (which organised the event together with Stichting Pools Podium), the Laaktheater in The Hague and the Euroscoop in Tilburg.
