Power of My Imagination! 2019

April 20 - 27, 2019

Renewing the excitement of last year, Pera Film launches this year’s edition of the Power of My Imagination! program, a celebration of authenticity and creativity on occasion of April 23 National Sovereignty and Children’s Day. The program offers a selection of three memorable classics pushing the boundaries of imagination: Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory, a 1971 movie depicting the journey of five lucky children accepted to Willy Wonka’s secret chocolate factory; The Lion King, a 1994 film about Simba’s brave and heroic adventure, one of the most popular feature animations since release, and Toy Story, the startling journey of Andy, whose passion is to collect toys, and one of the top hits of Walt Disney Studios.

Józef Brandt harboured a fascination for the history of 17th century Poland, and his favourite themes included ballistic scenes and genre scenes before and after the battle proper –all and sundry marches, returns, supply trains, billets and encampments, patrols, and similar motifs illustrating the drudgery of warfare outside of its culminating moments.
