Screening of Three Colors: Red


Dear all,

We are pleased to invite all of you to our last screening this semester. On Wednesday, December 14 at 7:30pm in W20-491 (Students Center) at MIT we will be showing the last (and supposedly best!) part of the Three Colors trilogy by Krzysztof Kieślowski: Three Colors: Red. The movie relates to fraternity, the last ideal of the French Revolution. It is in French with English subtitles.

We will serve delicious pierogi before the screening. Let us know if you are coming by signing up here.

See you on Wednesday!

Screening of Three Colors: White

Thank you for joining us last Friday to celebrate Polish Independence Day. We had terrific time, and more than thirty people from Boston area showed up. We would like to particularly thank Harvard Polish Society for co-organizing the event and brining delicious food.

This week we would like to invite you to our second screening this semester. On Thursday, November 17 at 7:30pm in 32-155 (Stata center) on MIT campus, we are showing Kieślowski’s Three Colors: White, the second part of the Three Colors trilogy. We will be serving pierogis just before. To help us plan the amount of food we need to prepare, please sign up here.

Polish Club at MIT

Screening of Three Colors: Blue

Dear all,

Thank you all for coming to our pub meeting in Asgard last Thursday, we were glad to see so many people, especially the new members!

We are pleased to invite you to our first screening this semester. This coming Thursday, at 7:30pm in 4-231 on MIT campus we are projecting Krzysztof Kieślowski’s Three Colors: Blue.

Three Colors: Blue is the first of the three movies that comprise the trilogy Three Colors. We plan to screen the other two parts in November (White) and December (Red)*. Blue tells the story of a woman who tragically lost her husband and daughter and is trying to free herself from the past. The movie is in French, with English subtitles. The relation of the colors in the trilogy title to the colors of the French flag is not accidental. Throughout the three parts, there are many connotations with the ideals of French Revolution: liberty, equality and fraternity.

Polish snacks will be served before the screening. Please sign up here (not compulsory) if you are planning to come, to make it easier for us when buying food.

Best wishes,
Jonasz Słomka
Piotr Suwara

P.S. Tentative dates for the remaining parts are: White, November 17, Red, December 14.

You are cordially invited to our second meeting this semester. Let’s meet for a dinner in Asgard, 7pm, on Thursday (10/20).

On another note, next week on Thursday (10/27) we will be screening Three Colors: Blue by Krzysztof Kieślowski. The event will take place in 4-231 at 7:30pm. Polish snacks will be served before. More info to follow – stay tuned and save the date!

Welcome back! Sidney Pacific Cultural Festival + Dinner next week

We hope all of you had a terrific summer. The new semester starts next week, and the Polish Club at MIT is ready for the kick-off! We have two events planned for the next couple of days.

1. We would like to invite all MIT students to the Sidney Pacific Cultural Festival. The festival takes place in Sidney Pacific (NW86) this coming Saturday, September 3, between 12pm and 3pm. Ten student clubs representing different countries, including our club, will serve their national food – get ready for pierogis and potato pancakes! We also plan to screen one of Baginiśki’s short movies during the event.

2. After such a long break, we should all get together (open to non-MIT students) and catch up! Let’s meet for a dinner next week in Zaftigs Delicatessen (335 Harvard Street, Brookline). It’s a great venue within a walking distance from MIT and they have Polish food, too. If you would like to join us, you can vote for dates and sign up here.

Finally, new academic year means freshers are coming to town. Help us recruit new members – should you get to know someone interested in the Polish Club, do not hesitate to give them our emails!

Hope to see you all soon!
