Poland comes under the spotlight in the next TK Park “Contemporary World Film Series” event with “Foreign Body” by world-renowned director Krzysztof Zanussi showing on April 29 at 4pm.

The screening is supported by the Embassy of Poland, who will serve snacks and drinks after the screening.

“Foreign Body” also closes out the Polish Arts & Culture Week organised by the embassy in collaboration with the Centre for European Studies of Chulalongkorn University’s arts faculty, which runs from April 23 to 29.

Released in 2014, “Foreign Body” – “Obce Cialo” in Polish –is a coproduction with Italian and Russian. Set in the three countries, the movie has a strong Catholic background, together with political, moral, and feminist overtones. 

The film centres on gentle Italian Angelo who follows his Polish girlfriend Kasia to Poland when she wants to join a convent. Though they are both believers in the Roman Catholic faith, he hopes she’ll change her mind. He takes up a job in a company near her convent, where he meets Kris Nilska, his boss, who wants to seduce him.

When she does not succeed, she and her assistant Mira play many diabolic games, especially when they go to Russia, for a job contract.

The haunting background scores were created by Wojciech Kilar, who unfortunately died before the film was completed.

The screening takes place at TK Park’s Dazzle Zone 8th floor, Central World, Dazzle Zone.

The film has English subtitles only and is rated 18+.

Admission is Bt20 and the auditorium will open at 3pm Book a seat by emailing yuttinai@tkpark.or.th , https://goo.gl/m4m336 or visit www.tkpark.or.th Film
