Our Mission: Polish Film Club OKO is a private discussion club, affiliated with the Polish Cultural Center in Seattle (a non-profit organization), and devoted to promoting Polish-themed film art in the Pacific Northwest through exposure, education and discussion - ALL FILMS HAVE ENGLISH SUBTITLES.

ATTENTION FEBRUARY 2019: OKO's mission changed to promote survival of the Polish language among the immigrants: we will still strive to show films with the English subtitles, but it's no longer a major priority. Watch each post for the info on whether the subtitles are provided. We hope you continue to enjoy the Polish Films!

See you at Kino OKO and thank you for being a film friend. OKO logo by Iza Turski.

For the English speaking readers...

Sorry,  I have never found the English subtitles version for 'Czeski sen' or 'Angelus'.  So today an offering for the English speaking readers; a very interesting documentary  I came across a few weeks ago: 'The Century of the Self - Happiness Machine' in several installments on youtube.

It's a BBC production for public television, about the role of psychoanalysis, marketing and public relations in the United States. From Adam Curtis, the same director as 'the power of nightmares'.  Enjoy!

'The Century of the Self - Happiness Machine'

Go to YouTube for the subsequent parts if they are not showing here after part 1...
