- In accordance with the theme for this edition, "Kamienie Milowe" / "Milestones", this year's FESTIVAL OF SILENT FILMS will focus on works that significantly influenced the art of film and were frequently the starting point of currents and directions that remain alive in filmmaking to this day. David W. Griffith's INTOLERANCE (1919) is an example of innovative film narration, built on a foundation that among other things consists of a production technique that is used to this day and is referred to as the "last minute rescue." BROKEN BLOSSOMS (1919) by this same director is, in turn, one of the most beautiful film melodramas on record. Victor Sjöström's THE WOMAN HE CHOSE (1917) embodies the assumptions of the Swedish film school, which introduced nature into cinema, using it not only as a setting, but also demonstrating its capacity to represent characters' emotions and moods. The festival program will also include screenings of Charles Chaplin's THE PILGRIM (1922), James Cruze's western THE COVERED WAGON (1923), Josef von Sternberg's UNDERWORLD (1927), Friedrich Murnau's classic vampire tale NOSFERATU, A SYMPHONY OF HORROR (1922), Robert Wiene's THE CABINET OF DOCTOR CALIGARI (1919), Fritz Lang's METROPOLIS (1926), and Carl Th. Dreyer's THE PASSION OF JOAN OF ARC (1928), which will inaugurate this year's edition of the event.
