About the Event

Come and join the ‘Social Cinema’ on the 7th of February!

Expect a film that asks for debate, which is why we call it Social Cinema. After watching the film everybody will have the opportunity to discuss and share his/her view on the film.

It will be fun!

The film we are going to display, the name will be revealed soon.


We are going to display an interesting and nice movie called 'Kolya'.

This movie is about Franta Louka who is a concert cellist in Soviet-occupied Czechoslovakia, a confirmed bachelor and a lady's man. Having lost his place in the state orchestra, he must make ends meet by playing at funerals and painting tombstones. But he has run up a large debt, and when his friend, the grave-digger Mr. Broz, suggests a scheme for making a lot of money by marrying a Russian woman so that she can get her Czech papers, he reluctantly agrees. She takes advantage of the situation to emigrate to West Germany, to her lover; and leaves her five-year-old son with his grandmother; when the grandmother dies, Kolya must come and live with his stepfather - Louka.
