Agnieszka Holland Lecture and Film

The Embassy of the Republic of Poland and The National Gallery of Art will present an illustrated lecture by film director Agnieszka Holland followed by a screening of her latest miniseries Burning Bush.

photo-1forweb   Holland discusses her latest narrative feature In Darkness (2011) and the miniseries Burning Bush (2013). Both works are based on historic events — the struggle to survive in Nazi-occupied Poland and the revolutionary reaction to the Soviet invasion of Czechoslovakia in 1969, respectively — and illustrate with empathy the humanitarian and existential plight of various individuals.

Born in 1948 in Warsaw, Holland is one of Poland’s most internationally acclaimed film directors and screenwriters.

Sunday – December 1, 2:00- 3:00 pm Lecture / 3:30 pm Film screening; Admission Free.  National Gallery of Art – East Building Concourse Auditorium (National Mall between 3rd and 4th Streets along Constitution Avenue NW), Washington, DC.
