► KINO MURANÓW:
Do activists lack systemic tools to protect the environment? If the systemic instruments are insufficient, can the defenders of our common future look for them outside the system?
The panel will be moderated by Urszula Jabłońska, journalist and reporter, winner of the Grand Press Award 2012 in the "Press reportage" category.
Marta Jagusztyn, researcher and co-founder of the Forests and Citizens Initiative, which documents, studies and supports civic groups engaged in forest affairs.
Jadwiga Klata, a representative of the young generation of climate activists, member of the Climate Solidarity Movement

- 6 pm second and last screening of "All That Breathes” followed by a Q&A session with the 2nd director
New Delhi is a city suffocating from the smog that kills people and animals. Even the birds, which increasingly often fall from the sky, lack oxygen here. Fortunately, there are people ready to help them. Saud and Nadeem devote themselves to saving the black kites, great birds of prey necessary for the functioning of the urban ecosystem.
The film has won multiple awards:
2022 Sundance FF (Festival Winner Grand Jury Prize, World Cinema – Documentary)
2022 Krakow FF (Silver Horn Award)
2022 Festival de Cannes (Winner Golden Eye)
- 8 pm last screening of "The March on Rome" by Mark Cousins, who, in another instalment of the very personal history of cinema, exposes the patterns of fascist propaganda from a century ago and shows how many continue to be used by various kinds of populists. This time, the British artist takes a film showing the triumphant march of black shirts through Italy and Mussolini's entry into Rome. As always, Cousins masterfully juxtaposes archival fragments, providing them with critical commentary and references to the history of cinema.
