About the movie “Chłopi”
The film presents the fate of the Purina family and the mysterious beauty Jagna against the backdrop of the changing seasons and seasonal field work. The uniquely small world of a rural community becomes a pretext for telling a universal and still relevant story about tragic love and life in a small community, where the rules of the game and its brutal rules assign each individual a specific place in the group. Deviating from the narrow framework may lead to humiliation and rejection. The film was made based on paintings from Poland’s youth, which perfectly capture the mood of Władysław Reymont’s novel. Interpretations of works by artists such as Józef Chełmoński, Ferdynand Ruszczyc and Leon Wyczółkowski will appear on the big screen.
