A touching picture of the life of a contemporary Polish family. Bartek (Arkadiusz Janiczek) and Beata (a big role of Jowita Budnik) are a young couple with two children. They live in the centre of Warsaw, near the Savior’s Square, but they are looking forward to moving to a new apartment. However, unexpected problems cross their plans, putting their relationship to the test. Savior Square, following each character with empathy, shows the destructive effects of the political transformation on human relationships. The film, awarded with the Golden Lions award at the Gdynia Film Festival, became one of the most important Polish films of the previous decade. The screening will be accompanied by a meeting with Joanna Kos-Krauze, co-director of the film.
