Lynx x 21st Millennium Docs Against Gravity a proud media partner of the 21st edition of the MDAG Film Festival.

Contemporary Lynx is a proud media partner of the 21st Millennium Docs Against Gravity Film Festival. The 21st edition of the MDAG, Poland’s biggest film festival, will take place from 10 to 19 May in cinemas in eight Polish cities (Warsaw, Wrocław, Gdynia, Poznań, Katowice, Łódź, Bydgoszcz and Lublin) and from the 21 May to 3 June online at! As always, the unforgettable film journeys will be accompanied by meetings with the filmmakers and protagonists as well as debates on topics presented on screen.

The slogan of this year’s MDAG is “In Relationship With the World”, and this is how the festival’s artistic director, Karol Piekarczyk, explains its meaning: “The slogan refers directly to the topics addressed by the films presented in the festival programme. It is also a tribute to the extraordinary work of the filmmakers who show us the reality that surrounds us and the magical bond created in the cinema hall. Following the slogan, this year, we are focusing on human relationships and showing the boundless complexity of our nature. On the one hand, it enables us to develop friendship, love, and empathy. On the other hand, our species is responsible for the destruction of itself and the planet, which is not only our home.”

The festival is also accompanied by the first exhibition of Libuše Jarcovjáková’s photography in Poland: PARTIES!

Libuše Jarcovjáková navigating with her camera through various spaces and cities. Different circumstances, atmosphere and personal set up. Sometimes spotted, more often firing her flash from ambush. The exhibition will present one of Jarcovjáková’s key point of view: recording life and joy across social classes or gender.

Along the exhibition there will be the premiere of her new book T-Club (Untitled publishing, 2024), which provides a unique insight into wild underground life of the legendary LGBTQ+ bar in Prague in 1980s. The exhibition is curated by Lucie Černá.

Where: BWA Warsaw, 34/50/666 Marszałkowska Street, 00-554 Warsaw
