Join us for a COMPLIMENTARY matinee

screening of THE PEASANTS
on Saturday, January 27 at 1:20 PM at
The Angelika Film Center & Cafe.

THE PEASANTS, the official Polish entry for this year’s Academy Awards® is an
extraordinary hand painted, animated film that required the talents of over 100 artists
to complete. The film is based on the Nobel Prize winning novel of the same title by
Wladyslaw Reymont.

What is the film about?

THE PEASANTS tells the story of Jagna, a young woman
determined to forge her own path within the confines of a late 19th century Polish
village – a hotbed of gossip and on-going feuds, held together, rich and poor, by
pride in their land, adherence to colorful traditions and deep-rooted patriarchy. When
Jagna finds herself caught between the conflicting desires of the village’s richest
farmer, his eldest son, and other leading men of the community, her resistance puts
her on a tragic collision course with the community around her.

Important: THE PEASANTS screening is a FREE event. All seating is on a first come,
