This is the real life story of Michalina Wisłocka (Magdalena Boczarska), the most famous female sexologist in Poland, whose book The Art of Loving faced many difficulties in getting published during the communist era. Eventually the book went on to sell over seven million copies, and revolutionised the way people in Poland thought about sex. The director presents the topic in a way that is free from judgement, allowing the audience to feel this same freedom as well. The film was nominated for a Golden Frog and Golden Lion at the Camerimage and Polish Film Festivals respectively.
Screening will be followed by a Q&A with Maria Sadowska.
