Celebrating Polish-American Month with EO by Jerzy Skolimowski!

The Polish-American Heritage Month is here!

For the first time in Chicago, Polish National Alliance organizes a screening of films directed by Polish filmmakers!

Celebrating this special month for the Polish-American community, we want to encourage young people and adults to focus for a moment on Polish artists working in the film and television industry, which have achieved global recognition. Sharing their movies with Polonia creates awareness about their achievements that today are part of Polish heritage we all should know. 

This year we are focusing on Jerzy Skolimowski, a graduate of the prestigious Łódź Film School in Poland, who became an outstanding Polish director, screenwriter, playwriter, actor and painter.
