Film Screening • The Balcony Movie (Poland, 2021)

January 26, 2023 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Can anyone be a movie hero? Can the world be locked in one film frame? Acclaimed Polish documentarian Paweł Łoziński directs his camera at the sidewalk below his balcony. On this gray strip of pavement, sandwiched between dull green grass and a tall wire fence, a colorful procession of locals, relatives, passersby and homeless people walk by. Lozinski tries to strike up a conversation with everyone. He asks who they are, what they do, and what they think about the meaning of life. Some pass by in a hurry, but most answer at length and tell half their life story in the process.

In Polish with English subtitles • DCP • 100″


Free and open to public. Presented by the UNC Center for Slavic, Eurasian and East European Studies; the Department of Germanic and Slavic Languages and Literatures; and the UNC Center for European Studies. For venue and parking info, please visit
