Transatlantyk is the one and only festival that has the ambition to talk about the present times through the art such as film and music. The strong voice of women was lately noticed in the whole world and that is why the program of this year's edition will express the emotions, fears, and hopes of the women worldwide. We will show the important role of woman in the society and we will talk not only about the widely known female representatives but also about the female heroes of everyday life. The portraits of a woman will be presented in the rich film program including the wide range of documentaries and feature films. The Power of Woman will be also present in the music section of the festival, during the panel discussions and Master Classes.
With the cooperation of Summer Festival POLOWKA, we are happy to present the special section of the movies - Girl Power dedicated directly and indirectly to the topic of womanhood. What is new in the this year's edition of the festival is the retrospective of polish director - Barbara Sass-Zdort, the author who create one of the most provocative portraits of woman in polish cinema although she never wanted to be limited by the female cinema expression and was the advocate of the statement that the gender in the director professions does not matter.
The world in crisis listens carefully to the voice of women. We can argue with them but we cannot ignore them. Women are working hard and are the keepers of the most important values. We would like to pay the tribute to The Power of Woman. Let me invite you, Jan A.P. Kaczmarek.
