VIDEO: ‘Operation Hyacinth’ is named after the police operation of the same name which was conducted by the Communist Citizen’s Militia (MO) between 1985-87 and led to information being collected on around 11,000 gay men and a record of their sexuality being kept on police record.
VIDEO: Subtitled ‘Growing up is a tearful business’, the award-winning film from Piotr Domalewski will hit cinemas tomorrow (23rd July).
The lead roles have all been taken by actresses who are relative newcomers, and while Polish fans may recognize a few of the recurring characters, the show has become a hit for the quality of performances and content, rather than star power.
Two films by Polish producers, 'I Never Cry' by Piotr Domalewski and 'Quo vadis, Aida?' by Ewa Puszczyńska, were selected for screening at the 25th Busan International Film Festival held on October 21-30 in Busan, South Korea.
