Dożynki

Dear Friends:

St. Mary’s Polish Parish invites you to the Polish Harvest Festival (“Dożynki”).

It will be held this Sunday, October 30, from 3 p.m. until 6 p.m. in the Polish Village Hall (Victoria Road at Jamieson St., Whitney Pier). Admission is free. There will be Polish food for sale, a Polish mini-market, children’s games (and prizes), and cultural demonstrations related to Polish harvest customs. Proceeds from food and market sales will support the final phase of the rebuilding of St. Mary’s Polish Church, for which we still need to raise approximately $80,000.

Everyone is welcome.

Due to repairs downstairs, we will be using the upper level only this year.

Please share the attached poster.

Thanks for your support!
Dziękuję bardzo i do zobaczenia,

Second Polish Film Festival
Oct
22
to Oct 23

Second Polish Film Festival

22 OCTOBER 2 PM: PETER AND THE WOLF

22 OCTOBER 7PM: BOGOWIE

23 OCTOBER 6:30PM: DEMON

 

The Polish-Canadian Society of Nova Scotia presents three public screenings of Polish films.

Peter and the Wolf (Suzie Templeton, 2006)

In this adaptation of Sergei Prokofiev’s symphonic narrative, beautifully crafted stop-motion animation replaces Prokofiev’s narrator, and a twenty-first century ending challenges viewers to think about humans’ relationship with nature. The film, which was made in Łódź at Se-ma-for Studios, won the Oscar for best animated short. The screening will be accompanied by activities for children. Note: appropriate for school-aged children and up. 

Bogowie (Łukasz Palkowski, 2014)

Zbigniew Religa performed the first successful heart transplant in Poland in 1987 – a grueling, 23-hour operation considered almost impossible at the time. This award-winning dramatization explores Religa’s struggles against ethical objectors, bureaucracy, and lack of funding in a complex era, capturing the intensity of the operating room, the energy and even the arrogance of this medical trailblazer. In Polish with English subtitles.

Demon (Marcin Wrona, 2015)

This chilling, uncanny film is based on the Jewish tale of the dybbuk, the spirit of a deceased person who possesses a living one. It is part historical allegory, part bloodless horror film, part family drama, and part black comedy. This Polish-Israeli co-production is as engaging as it is artistically powerful. In Polish, English, and Yiddish with English subtitles.

All screenings will be held at the Dalhousie Arts Centre, 2nd Floor, McAloney Room (6101 University Avenue, Halifax).  

Family film screening of Peter & Wolf FREE and will include activities for children.

Tickets for evening screenings are available at the door: $5 for one film or $8 for both. Reception to follow Bogowie & Demon.
