“Birds Are Singing in Kigali” Opening in the Polish Theatres on September 22nd / by Ada Zielinska

Birds Are Singing in Kigali by Joanna Kos-Krauze and Krzysztof Krauze will have the wide theatrical release in the Polish theatres, starting from September 22nd. The film is already highly anticipated by the audiences after its success and the Best Actress Prizes at the Karlovy Vary IFF and the extensive press coverage as well as numerous enthusiastic film reviews that have appeared in the Polish media.

The major Polish media outlets reported on the film’s ardent international reception after its world premiere in Karlovy Vary. Barbara Hollender of the Rzeczpospolita daily stated “Birds Are Singing in Kigali is a multi-layered film. Also on the consequences of terror. […] But this is not the documentary. It goes deeper. It shows contemporary world and the meanders of humanity.” Krzysztof Kwiatkowski of the Wyborcza Daily noticed that the film is “a strong commentary on current political situation in Europe, but – most of all – is an ominous tale on life overpowered by suffering.” Lukasz Maciejewski on Film.onet.pl wrote “Birds Are Singing in Kigali shows what happens with people after ‘the end of the world.’ How to survive a catastrophe; how to live when there is no strength for living left.”  

Birds Are Singing in Kigali will be also soon presented in the main competition of the prestigious 42nd Gdynia Polish Film Festival to take place between September 18th-23rd.
