In this episode of The Debrief, we speak to Nomadland author Jessica Bruder following her whirlwind tour of Poland to receive the Kapuściński Prize for Literary Journalism.
Located in Warsaw’s Pola Mokotowskie district, Ryszard Kapuściński lived in the house between 1946-1955 with his parents and sister until he was 23.
Organisers Tessa Moult-Milewska and Ewelina Leszczyńska want to show that animation films aren’t only for children and prove that they can often address the most difficult social topics.
The Polish Press Agency’s only communist-era correspondent covering Africa, South America and Asia, Kapuściński, who died 12 years ago today, reported on 27 revolutions and coups before being fired for his support of Poland’s Solidarity movement. He is also one of the most translated Polish writers of all time.
