1) Millennium Docs Against Gravity VOD platform kicks off
Quite a straightforward thing – this is a platform containing the best documentaries of the last couple of years. The festival became a household name a few years ago, so now their move into online seems only logical. The service will stay for longer, so no rush watching over 80 positions in its library. New titles are also premiering regularly. This week’s big hit seems to be the Berlinale 2013 winner – “The Broken Circle Breakdown” about a couple of bluegrass musicians struggling with their daughter’s serious illness.
2) Poland. The Power of Images. – an online exhibition
The National Museum went the extra mile to prepare an engaging exhibition experience in cooperation with Huawei. As a result, we got a 3D walk showcasing the masterpieces of Polish pictorial arts. You can take a really detailed look at the works of Jan Matejko, Stanisław Wyspiański, Jacek Malczewski, and many others. A true delight and a deeply immersing experience if you have VR goggles.
3) Meditation 101
If 2020 didn’t make you already take up meditating, then congrats. However, taking proper care of your psyche has always made for a good New Year’s resolution. So why not try putting the mind at ease, finding inner peace, and enjoying life while we still can? Participation in this workshop is free and you will receive an ebook describing the best diet for your brain.
when: Saturday, January 9, from 18:00
4) Ice swimming
Ice swimming is definitely becoming a thing this winter. Almost everybody is doing it. There are undisputed benefits of the activity – reducing stress, boosting the immune system, increasing libido, and many others. Those of you who suffer from any cardiac or blood circulation problems, or struggle with kidney issues should contact their GP first. Yeah, and while we are at it, ice swimming has become the way to meet new people these days, so yeah… might wanna try that.
when: Sunday, January 10, from 12:00
where: Jeziorko Czerniakowskie
5) Kordian online from the National Theater
Kordian is a masterpiece of Polish drama written by its legend – Juliusz Słowacki. It dramatizes the choices made in order to save the father’s land, honor, and life. A must-watch even for those who will only follow the subtitles.
when: from Friday, January 8, till Monday, January 11
