    Palace

    ABOUT THE FILM

    The Palace of Culture and Science in Warsaw was a despised gift from Stalin. After the system transformation in Poland some suggested to pull it down. But the palace is still standing and doing fine pulsating with the life of hundreds of offices, hosting a theatre, concert hall, cinema and even a swimming pool and city council room. Having already visited a clinic, hospital and registry office, this time Wolski with his camera enters the building that is a reflection of Poland’s everyday life and history. The nooks and crannies of the building and the crowds that fill it make a backdrop to apt and witty observations as well as an inspiration to more general diagnoses.
