Seduction Camp
is a 52-minute documentary about schools in Poland that teach the fine art of seduction. The film shows the phenomenon of seduction schools through observation of a training session for men, where they learn the skills to entice the opposite sex.  Today, men line up to take this unique course and are willing to pay high prices for the wisdom.  By observing the consequences in the students’ lives, the director tries to find out whether pupils of seduction camps gain or lose by taking part in the training.

Directed by Konrad Szolajski.

North of Calabria is a 67-minute half-documentary, half-improvised drama about small towns, death, life, and snails.  The film won the Best Documentary Film Prize at the 2010 Summer Film Festival in Zamosc, Poland. For one summer, the film crew mingles with the inhabitants of a small Polish town- many of them widows-to create an almost-Italian comedy. North of Calabria is about a dream place to live, where living is easy and people know each other, tolerate their faults, like to meet to talk and just be together. It appears that all they need are a few Italian cooking classes and the art of carpe diem to turn a Polish province into a look-alike of Calabria, Italy.  

Directed by Marcin Sauter.  The film will be followed by a Q&A with Mr. Sauter.

The screening is sponsored by Polish Film Institute; Adam Mickiewicz
Institute; Adam M. Bak Foundation; InterCity; and Metropolis Artists
