Saturday at the Festival


Saturday at the festival means two big events. At Kino Muranów there will be a debate entitled “Freedom in the Arab world – revolt of the elites, revolt of the masses” related to this year’s Sakharoff Prize by the European Parliament to Raif Badawi, a Saudi blogger. The second important event associated with the Arab world will be a screening of the film “Team E” and a Q&A with its protagonist, Anna Neistat.

At Iluzjon Cinema audiences will have an opportunity watch the documentary "Something Better to Come" directed by Hanna Polak, a juror at this year’s WATCH DOCS. The afternoon is also time for Nick Broomfield, winner of the Marek Nowicki Prize awarded by the Helsinki Foundation for Human Rights. Today, you can choose from three of his films, "Tales of the Grim Sleeper" and a double feature of "Proud to be British " and "Behind the Rent Strike."
The evening is reserved primarily for screenings of competition films. There will be a film about last year’s Sakharoff prize winner, "The Man Who Mends Women: The Wrath of Hippocrates," as well as the Russian documentary “Kiev/Moscow,” a film edited from archive materials about the Red Army Fraction "A German Youth," "Fear of 13" about the American (in)justice system, as well as the newest commentary about the migrant-refugee crisis "Lampedusa in Winter." Q&A’s with filmmakers will follow each screening. 

If you cannot attend the festival but want to see our films, we encourage you to check out the 15th WATCH DOCS Festival film selection on the Kinoplex platform.

See you there!
