From the tenth
edition of the course
Cracow and Warsaw
- daily update -
Many thanks to Peter Bosma, a past participant at the 2012 edition of DigiTraining Plus and also attending this year's course, who has provided the following summary of the third day.
On the third day of DigiTraining 2013 our group of digitization investigators visited three cinemas in Warsaw. Again it was a day of contrasts, starting at the landmark Palace of Culture and Science, built in 1955.
This imposing monument to the era of Stalin, with 8 screening rooms and 2 lobbies, has been the location of the art-house Kinoteka since 2001.
We saw the short 3D animation film "Warsaw 1935" in which the cityscape of pre-war times is recreated. It was a virtual tour marked by a high degree of realism.
In both venues Asghar Farhadi’s most recent film Le Passè (Polish title: Przeszłość) was shown,. The director would be amazed to hear of these totally different settings for the screening of his film. We enjoyed a brief moment of free time to explore the sun-soaked city but were eager to get to the third stop of the day, the cinema Iluzjon, two screening rooms offering a programme largely based on the repertoire of the National Film Archive of Poland.
