Free Movie Tonight at MD. Hall in Annapolis

From acrobats and jugglers to string musicians and poetry readings, World Wide Artist Experiences provides free arts performances throughout the year at Maryland Hall for the Performing Arts to promote international goodwill and understanding. This year they are presenting an International film festival and tonight the film is from Poland.
Ile waży koń trojański? means “How Much Does the Trojan Horse Weigh? It’s uses the vehicle of time travel aka “Peggy Sue Gets Married” to explore the result of the political and social changes in late 20th century Poland. At 40, Zosia (Ilona Ostrowska) is happliy married and living in Warsaw. She has a daughter and a successful career. But as she and her family usher in the year 2000, she wishes some things in her youth had happened differently, and she’s magically transported back to 1987, when she was still married to her womanizing first husband. Director Juliusz Machulski is known for his successful commedies, but this is a serious film. Machulski uses the film’s plot to chart Poland’s transition from communism to capitalism, a subject even more engaging than the foibles of his plucky heroine. In Polish with subtitles, the showing begins at 7:00 p.m. and is free. Sounds like an interesting evening.
