Until May 20th, we will have the opportunity to see documentary stories about amongs others Grace Jones (“Grace Jones: Bloodlight and Bami”), Vivienne Westwood (“Westwood: Punk, Icon, Activist”) and MIA (“MATANGI / MAYA / MIA”), who will also be a special guest during the festival and will take part in Q&A sessions open to public.
In cooperation with Plac Defilad, the Millennium Docs Against Gravity Festival also organised a special women’s concert to celebrate the 100th anniversary of women’s electoral rights, headlining Paulina Przybysz. The women’s concert is part of the program of the fifth edition of Plac Defilad, which starts this year under the slogan “Plac Kobiet” (Women’s square). Between May 11-13, at the Palace of Culture and Science, new name plates will be installed, announcing the new name of the space “Plac Kobiet 1” (Women’s square 1) and a special map of the city’s female DNA will be presented, a female portrait of Warsaw.
