Stanisław Lem: mysteries and paradoxes - special event
The Author of Solaris by Borys Lankosz - special screening; The Holocaust and the Stars. The Past in Stanislaw Lem’s Prose - promotional event for the book by Agnieszka Gajewska.
Stanisław Lem’s biography still harbours many mysteries and paradoxes. How did he survive the Holocaust? What was his attitude towards the Polish People’s Republic? How did he manage to keep track of the global scientific and technological progress back in the 1950s?
During an exceptional event dedicated to Stanisław Lem we will present a screening of the first biographical film devoted to Stanisław Lem; you will also have an opportunity to meet the journalist Wojciech Orliński who wrote the script for the film, and Agnieszka Gajewska, author of the book about Lem.
The event will be moderated by Tomasz Fiałkowski – journalist, literary critic and editor of Stanisław Lem’s books.
