The Polish Film Club Kino OKO presents the movie Citizen / Obywatel, directed by Jerzy Stuhr and starring Jerzy and Maciej Stuhrs.  This 2015 comedy has been compared to Forrest Gump for having a hapless everyman anti-hero and for whizzing through the past 60 years of Polish history  after WWII with biting irony and satire mixed with nostalgia and moral reflections.

Evening schedule: 7 pm socializing & film intro, 7:30 pm screening.
