25th Polish Film Festival in America, 8-24 November 2013, Chicago ~ Film screening list

Okay some  information regarding the showing of  

MESMERIZING FILM IMAGINE BY ANDRZEJ JAKIMOWSKI AT THE 25TH POLISH FILM FESTIVAL IN AMERICA TOMORROW

IMAGINE, a new film by Andrzej Jakimowski will have its only screening tomorrow, on Wednesday, November 13, 2013 at 8:00 PM. in Muvico Rosemont 18. The special presentation is sponsored by Kraff Eye Institute.

The plot is set in a well-known Lisbon clinic for visually impaired where Ian, a new instructor, begins to teach special orientation to his international group of blind patients. For him, the keys to getting around and living a fulfilling life are the mind and the imagination, and not sensory perception. However, his methods – although successful – prove to be too challenging for his patients.

Jakimowski’s masterful treatment of the material – says one film critic – takes IMAGINE up to new heights of a lyrical metaphor about trust, the sense of reality, perspectives and coping in life.

Andrzej Jakimowski (b. 1963) is one of the most outstanding Polish filmmakers. His debut film Squint Your Eyes and later internationally-acclaimed Tricks received enthusiastic welcome from audiences and film critics worldwide and were widely awarded. IMAGINE is selected for this year’s European Film Awards.

The screening’s sponsor Kraff Eye Institute is a leading pioneer in laser vision correction. The Chicago-based Kraff Eye Institute has long sought to improve the vision of its patients, always putting their safety, quality of vision and experience first. Its physicians take the time to educate their patients about the latest techniques and technology for laser correction and treatment of cataracts. The Kraff name has become synonymous with pioneering bold, new techniques and providing the highest quality, most contemporary care available in ophthalmology internationally and throughout Chicago.

Muvico Rosemont 18 is located at 9701 Bryn Mawr Ave. by River Rd. South exit from I-90. The theatre has ample parking, complimentary with parking ticket validation. The most elegant cinema centre offers fine dining in Bogart’s Bar and Grill.

Tickets can be purchased online @ www.pffamerica.com and over a phone at 773-486-9612 with any major credit card. The seats are unnumbered.

 The 25th Polish Film Festival in America sponsors are:  Polish Film Institute, Adam Mickiewicz Institute, Star-Tech Glass, BMO Harris Bank, State Farm Insurance, Muvico Theatres.The main media sponsor is itvn.

At the Baltic banks of Westerplatte, on September 1, 1939, salvos of the largest Nazi vessel Schlezwig-Holstein “visiting” the harbor, announced the beginning of the WWII.
At the other end, about two hundred Polish soldiers heroically maintained their military foothold at the banks of Westerplatte, and within hours it became apparent that countless armored Nazi divisions were invading Poland.

Yet for seven days the Poles maintained their increasingly suicidal foothold. 1939. THE SECRET OF WESTERPLATTE is a war drama of the fight of two commanders and their men. A heroic struggle between opposing views on bravery – to fight to the last soldier or to save the men and surrender under overwhelming odds…
