Together with the Embassy of the Republic of Poland in Washington, D.C. and REML™ (on behalf of Inbornmedia), we invite you to a screening of the movie “Chopin. I am Not Afraid of Darkness.”

The final film screening of Chopin. I am not Afraid of Darkness, includes Q&A session after the film

Film Synopsis: Three pianists prepare concerts in places associated with conflict and unimaginable suffering, where no one would expect to hear live music:

  • Poland – Memorial and Museum Auschwitz-Birkenau, former German Nazi concentration and extermination camp
  • South Korea – on a bridge with the authoritarian North Korean border (DMZ)
  • Lebanon – in Beirut city center

The film takes the viewer on a cinematic journey through these unique and sinister sceneries, while weaving together the stories of these outstanding musicians – one a Pole, another Korean, and the third a Syrian immigrant who is half Polish.

Chopin: I am not Afraid of Darkness received a 59th Golden Prague International Television Festival award in September 2022.

Please consider helping Ukrainian refugee children in Poland via the SOK Foundation. A tax deductible gift to SOK can be made on our GoFundMe campaign with the help of The Kosciusko Foundation.
