Latest films by Werner Herzog and Agnès Varda

The audiences in Warsaw, Gdynia, Wrocław, Bydgoszcz, Lublin and, for the first time, Katowice, will see the latest film by the Oscar nominee, legendary director Werner Herzog  "Meeting Gorbachev". This is a summit meeting of the cinema's master and Mikhail Gorbachev, the Nobel Prize winning Soviet leader, as well as a tale on the events which shaped today's geopolitical landscape.

Agnès Varda, a film virtuoso, the winner of an honorary Oscar, points the camera at herself in "Varda by Agnès". However, this is not a typical film self-portrait. It is more of a set of Varda's comments on her life and work as a director, photographer and installation artist.

16. Millenium Docs Against Gravity Film Festival will be held from 10th to 19th May in Warsaw, Wrocław and Lublin, from 15th to 24th May in Gdynia and from 12th to 19th May in Katowice. A local edition of the festival will be held in Bydgoszcz too, from 11th to 18th May.
