Transatlantyk Introduction: “Carol” preview screening!

The 6th edition of PGNiG Transatlantyk Festival is going to take place from 23rd to 30th June in Łódź. Before that, the festival invites its audience to Transatlantyk Introduction – a review of the most interesting films of this year. The first title is the Academy Award nominee “Carol” directed by Todd Haynes. The film will be presented on 25 February in Helios Sukcesja cinema. The next screenings are to be held in March, April, May and June. 
Six Academy Award nominations, five Golden Globe nominations, including Best Motion Picture — Drama, and Palme d'Or in Cannes for the Best Actress (Rooney Mara) — Todd Haynes’ “Carol” is one of the most frequently awarded films of the season. A few months before PGNiG Transatlantyk Festival in June, the audience in Łódź will have an opportunity to attend the preview screening of the film during the Transatlantyk Introduction cycle of screenings in Helios Sukcesja.

New York of the1950s. Young Teresa works in a department store and dreams of becoming a photographer. One day, she meets Carol - an elegant middle - aged woman, burnt out by an unsatifactory loveless marriage. They start a passionate love affair and carefully try to hide it from the outside world.  After all, their reality is rather conservative. But what would happen if the truth came to light? 
This moving, visually enchanting picture draws on classic American drama films from the1950s and 1960s. "Carol" is a story about the feeling that defies the conventions of its epoch. It is a very intimate and spare film; sophisticated, but with a pinch of rebellion. The acting rivalry between Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara is the main strength of Todd Haynes’ drama. It comes as no surprise that both actresses are this year’s Academy Award nominees.
 
“Carol” will be shown on 25 February at 7 pm in Helios Sukcesja in Łódź. 
Tickets (PLN 16) are available in box offices and via www.helios.pl system reservation.  The screening will open the film cycle which will last for the whole spring to announce PGNiG Transatlantyk Festival before its first Łódź edition (from 23 to 30 June 2016).

Next screenings will be announced soon.
