A fascinating journey through the continents that is the 8th edition of FILMY ŚWIATA ALE KINO+ Festival

The idea behind the festival is a rigorous selection and presentation of the best films from outside of the so-called Western World. During this year's 8th edition of the festival, taking place in few Polish cities between 22nd November and 3rd December 2012, the organizers - the movie channel ALE KINO and Mañana - invite public for a cinematic expedition to Brazil, a fascinating country that in recent years is growing into a global power, both economically and culturally. The program includes four very different films, showing great richness of the local film industry:
  •  THE CLAUN (O Palhaço) dir. Selton Mello – Brazilian candidate for an Oscar in 2013;
  •  ONCE UPON A TIME WAS I, VERONICA (Era uma vez eu, Verônica) dir. Marcelo Gomes
  •  NEIGHBORING SOUNDS (O som ao redor) dir. Kleber Mendonça Filho
  •  XINGU (Xingu) dir. Cao Hamburger
In addition to Brazil there will be also movies from countries such as Mexico, Morocco, Argentina, Colombia, Philippines, Israel and China, creating a unique set of films previously appreciated at prestigious festivals in Toronto, Venice, Cannes or San Sebastian.
