"Comedy vs. Communism: A Retrospective of Polish Cult Comedies from Communist Times celebrates film as a tool of resistance to totalitarian tyranny and political satire as a means of beginning the process of reestablishing political liberty. Please join us in watching these films and then meet with Dr. Anna Draniewicz, Research Fellow in VOC’s Polish Studies program for a Q&A during which she will answer the inevitable questions arising from the films and their portrayal of the surreal life in communist Poland."
