Janosik To Roll Out With Premiers Across Central Europe

FNE Staff with special reporting by Kasia Grinienko 2009-08-25

WARSAW: The long awaited Janosik. A True Story, directed by Agnieszka Holland and Kasia Adamik, will have gala premieres across Poland, Slovakia, and the Czech Republic beginning August 26.

The Polish -Slovak - Czech - Hungarian co-production, based on one of the most legendary characters of the traditional culture shared by the four countries, will premiere within the upcoming weeks in ---- three territories. On 26 August the world premiere celebration will take place in Nowy Sącz, a city in the Polish region of Małopolska which was strongly engaged in this project. On 4 September the movie will open in Polish cinemas with 115 prints as well as have its Slovak premiere with a gala hosted in Au-Park multiplex cinema in Bratislava. The Czech grand opening will take place on 9 September and on 10 September Janosik opens in cinemas in Slovakia with 17 prints and the Czech Republic with 38 prints. The Hungarian premier is still to come and the date will be announced later.

The movie is one of the most awaited film events not only because it is the biggest co-production of this type in the Cent-East Europe region, but also because it joins the four countries with it's theme. The movie evolves around the story of a famous Slovakian robber Janosik, a Robin Hood-type character in the Slav tradition. His story has been brought to the screen six times, one of which was a very popular Polish television series directed by Jerzy Passendorfer in 1974.

Over the next two days, FNE looks at the making of Janosik and its impact across the region, through an interview with producer Dariusz Jabłoński.
