‘With elegant concision, the film explores both the events leading up to the massacre and its aftermath, following a group of officers and their families through the agonies of war and the miseries of peacetime under Communism, circling back to end with an unsparing reconstruction of some of the killings.

The deaths are terrible and painful to watch, but the film’s dramatic momentum is carried by the sisters, mothers and widows of the dead, whose attempts to hold on to the truth are almost unbearably poignant. Maja Ostaszewska is quietly magnificent as Andrzej’s wife, Anna, who clings to the hope that he has, somehow, survived.’  New York Times Critics’ Pick  (The full review available here. )


Member Ticket Price: £8 including a glass of wine.

‘Winner of the Palme d’Or at Cannes, Wajda’s Man of Iron (1981) documents Polish solidarity during the 1980 workers strike at the Gdansk shipyards. Sequel to Wajda’s critically acclaimed Man of Marble (1977), Man of Iron continues the story of Mateusz Birkut (Jerzy Radziwilowicz) by following the experiences of his son, Maciej Tomczyk, also played by Jerzy Radziwilowicz. A ‘Man of Iron’ is a man forged by experience, making him strong and resilient. Maciej’s dedication to the worker’s movement, illustrated in well-executed flashbacks, reveals qualities of him that were otherwise suppressed. He becomes his father’s son and becomes instrumental in the flourishing of the Polish Solidarity movement. Crossing barriers between a documentary and fictional mode, Wajda’s Man of Iron is an invaluable historical artifact which seeks to express simultaneously the plight of the workers as well as the human condition of the modern man.’ – Martin Scorsese

In 1981 “Człowiek z żelaza” was distinguished with the most important award of the International Film Festival in Cannes – the Golden Palm. The film also won the Prize of the Ecumenical Jury at the same festival. In 1981 “Człowiek z żelaza”  also won the prize of “Solidarność” at the Gdańsk Polish Feature Film Festival. During the Lubuskie Film Summer the film was distinguished with a Silver Grape. In 1982 the film was nominated for an Oscar in the Best Foreign Language Film category.

‘Danton’ Screening at Ognisko’s Cinema

Tuesday, 19th of May, 7.30pm


‘Masterpiece’ The Sunday Telegraph

Remarkable’ The Observer

Magnificent’ The Daily Mail

Starring Gerard Depardieu and Andrzej Pszoniak

Directed by Oscar-winning Andrzej Wajda and featuring a powerful performance by Depardieu, this highly-acclaimed film won numerous awards including a BAFTA for ‘Best Foreign Film’. 

Screening kicks off at 7.30pm. Film Menu available afterwards, £18 for 2 courses, including Pot au Feu!

‘Gérard Depardieu and Wojciech Pszoniak star in Andrzej Wajda’s powerful, intimate depiction of the ideological clash between the earthy, man-of-the-people Georges Danton and icy Jacobin extremist Maximilien Robespierre, both key figures of the French Revolution. By drawing parallels to Polish “Solidarity,” a movement that was being quashed by the government as the film went into production, Wajda drags history into the present. Meticulous and fiery, Danton  has been hailed as one of the greatest films ever made about the Terror.’ New York University

TICKETS available on the door & online.

repulsion poster


Set in and around South Kensington it charts the unraveling mind of a beautiful French girl living in London. The extraordinary imagery and dark tension shows Polanski at the height of his powers.

‘It is one of Roman Polanski’s most brilliant films: a deeply disturbing, horribly convincing psychological thriller that is also that rarest of things: a scary movie in which a woman is permitted to do the killing. ‘ The Guardian

‘Fifty years after its original release, Repulsion is still thrilling. Collapsing pleasure and pain, attraction and revulsion, fragility and volatility, it is a thoroughly compelling film about all the contradictions of cinema and its obsession with femininity.’ The Quietus

£10 tickets and £8 concessions

Please book online

or on 020 7589 4670.
