U of T's Polish Students Association presents a free screening of Stranger (Malgorzata Szumowska, 2004, 101 minutes, English subtitles). Description:
One of the most exciting talents among a new generation of Polish directors, Szumowska applies sensuous visual storytelling to an entirely original, poetic film about the preciousness of life experience and the enormous rewards of sharing it.
'Stranger' follows a young woman Eva (the luminous Malgosia Bela) on an existential journey of discovery, inspiration, and love. She sets out to introduce the universe to her unborn child--the stranger who is also a part of herself...
As always, coffee and paczki after the movie! 7pm, free admission.
