Sometimes a film is so captivating that you find yourself staring at the screen long after the credits have ended. When this happens to us, we immediately want to share our experience.

"Eroica takes brave aim at the very heart of the Polish character, demolishing then reshaping the notion of male heroism in the modern age"
Why should you join other Facets Members and Facets Founder and Director Milos Stehlik on June 20 for a Members Only screening of Eroica by a director you may have never heard of.... Genius filmmakers are not born every day. You might have to sift through literally thousands of films to discover one such gem.
Eroica, a film by the incredibly talented Andrzej Munkwho tragically died just short of 40 years of ageis one such film. This visually stunning satire on heroism and courage is both realistic and profound, and, having been made in 1957, much ahead of its time.
Don't miss it. Drinks before, conversation and discussion after. For Facets' members and their guests only.
Directed by Andrzej Munk, Poland, 1958, 87 mins. In Polish with English subtitles.
