Screening: Symphony of the Ursus Factory
This event is not included in the pass. It requires an additional ticket.
Poland’s Ursus Factory was one of the largest producers of agricultural machinery in Europe, but closed after the collapse of communism. Visual artist and activist Jaśmina Wójcik returns with former workers - once numbering 20,000 - to re-enact a day’s labour at the abandoned factory. The result is a hybrid of documentary, choreography and body memory, with music by Dominik Strycharski. A Q&A with Jaśmina and Dominik will follow the screening.
The event is part of the INTER:FACE project commissioned by the Municipality of Kraków and Kraków Festival Office.
