Poles Aloud Show – 19th & 21st April 2015

Following Magda’s trip to The Big Smoke last weekend, we’re going to bring you some of the highlights from the Kinoteka Polish Film Festival. From poster’s exhibition, through to Oscar nominated documentaries and finishing off with a real treat for cinema lovers; Martin Scorsese Presents Masterpieces of Polish Cinema. We spoke to Marlena Łukasiak, the festival’s organiser about the origin of the festival and its development into one of the biggest film events in London. We also caught up with one of the acts, The Kissinger Twins, who delivered a fascinating presentation on interactive story telling (cinematic labyrinths).

I want to live like common people” – one Polish MP decides to taste the life of an average immigrant in London. He’s going to stay there for a month, looking for a job with enough money to cover only a weekly stay. Getting in touch with voters or simply another pre-election twist?

Filipinki & Alibabki – paving the way for girls’ bands, those two unique at the time groups had emerged from high school choirs to take the Polish music scene by storm. Unlike the modern girls’ bands with each and every group member being different, Filipinki & Alibabki wore the same outfits, same hair cut and none of them followed a solo career, making the groups last for over decades.

We’re also looking at some interesting statistics when it comes to Poles getting engaged with charity, volunteering and in general, with the local community.

How to beat a cold? A very up to date topic for a lot of people at this time of the year (including our presenters), so we’re hoping to share some useful but mostly utterly bizarre cold remedies as according to a Polish babcia (granny). Think about sticking a garlic clove up your nose, plus many more.

Sochi 2014 equals success and that’s for both Polish and British teams (thrilled about the mutual accomplishments). We’re looking at the medal table and stories of hard working individuals behind the glitzy fame of last few days.

EU representative in Bristol – We went to László Andor‘s lecture on “Labour Migration in the European Union. The Inconvenient Truth” and will share an audio clip from his facts packed speech. You can also read the whole lecture here.

We’re still hanging on to some post Christmas traditions (which makes sense as Poles take down their Christmas tree at the beginning of February) and we’re going to look at one that combines religious and pagan aspects.

Shopping centres – you would think there’s enough of them by now. Well the Poles try to catch up with the West and build as many as possible. Some foreign visitors don’t seem to appreciate them though.

Food – yummy and unique Polish bread doesn’t seem to stand a chance against people’s changing eating habits. We’re going to look at the statistics in Poland and in the UK, which show a significant drop in sales of bread throughout the last few years.
