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.

Kino Oko returns to the Polish Cultural Center with a film “Kiedyś będziemy szczęśliwi” by Paweł Wysoczański, one of the most talented young documentary filmmakers and winner of numerous awards in Poland and abroad.

The film is the story of Daniel, a quite ordinary adolescent from Lipiny, one of the worst neighborhoods in Silesia, who dreams about making his own movie. He is wandering about with his mobile phone, recording his neighbors and organizing a real casting for his production. His loving and devoted grandmother is waiting for him at home ready to call him to order when it's necessary.


Paweł Wysoczański graduated in Film Directing from the Krzysztof Kieslowski Faculty of Radio and Television at the University of Silesia, and in Film Studies from the Jagiellonian University.
