How strong was the influence of underground music culture on the fall of the communism in Poland?

Join us after the Looking beyond the concrete wall – discussion for the screening of BEATS OF FREEDOM – ZEW WOLNOŚCI movie, and try to find the answer with us!

“The film tells the story of rock music during the Communist era in the People’s Republic of Poland through the eyes of Chris Salewicz, a British journalist of Polish heritage. It’s a film about the sound that gave people a dose of freedom, about one of few aspects of everyday life that gave a bit of elbow room in an otherwise constrained society.” –

After the movie you will have an occasion to ask some questions and talk with Leszek Gnoiński, the co-director of the movie.

The discussion and screening are a part of our programme related to Home of Metal, to celebrate the global phenomenon of #HeavyMetal culture!
