WARSAW 44 / MIASTO 44 is an award winning film based on true events which depict the historic Warsaw uprising of 1944 in Poland.  

100 Anniversary of Poland’s Independence, 12-1-2018, Chicago Event, Copernicus Center, film screening, imprezy w chicago, Miasto 44, Polish Film Festival, Polish Movie, polskie wydarzenia w chicago, Warsaw 44ENGLISH:  This story takes place in Nazi occupied Warsaw in 1944.  Young Poles reach adulthood under brutal occupation, but remain hungry for life, passionate and impatient. They live as if every day were their last, not because they’re reckless, but because when death lurks around every corner, it’s the only way to live.

PO POLSKU: 1944, okupowana Warszawa. Opowieść o młodych Polakach, którym przyszło wchodzić w dorosłość w okrutnych realiach okupacji. Mimo to są pełni życia, namiętni, niecierpliwi. Żyją tak, jakby każdy dzień miał okazać się tym ostatnim. Nie wynika to jednak z nadmiernej brawury czy młodzieńczej lekkomyślności – taka postawa jest naturalna, kiedy śmierć grozi na każdym kroku.
