Film Festival - Cold War - UCLAN - 7pm -8.30pm - 16/10/19

Oct, 15 2019

~Consider the classic British romantic comedy. Think ‘Four Weddings’, ‘Love Actually’ and ‘Bridget Jones’, they all experience difficult times, some happy, some not so happy but it’s the intrinsic part of love which shapes all three films.

Now, flip the coin. We’re going abroad to a more darker, serious film yet still maintaining the romantic undertones.

On Wednesday evening, the 16th October UCLAN are hosting a Polish film as part of Preston’s International Film Festival. ‘Cold War’ will be screened from 7pm -8.30pm in the Mitchell and Kenyon Cinema at The Foster Building, Preston Campus.

The film is directed by Pawel Pawlikowski and stars Joanna Kulig and Tomasz Kot. It tells the story of two people who meet in the ruins of post-war Poland. Despite their contrasting backgrounds they become fatefully mismatched and yet condemned to each other. As you can imagine ‘Cold War’ documents the time in 1950’s Poland, Berlin, Yugoslavia and Paris. An undesirable couple become entwined in a web of politics, character flaws and unfortunate twists of fate. This ultimately becomes an impossible love story in impossible times.

Tickets are £3 for adults, £2.50 for students and concessions and £15 for a festival pass. You can book yours by logging onto the following website address:-
Limited tickets will be available on the door.
