event-date: 18.04.2013

Among the participants will be, among others, Grażyna M. Grabowska from the National Film Archive, and the composer Michał Lorenc. At 16:00, Prof. Krzysztof Stopka, the Museum Director,  will guide visitors through the new exhibition ‘On 1683. The Jagiellonian University and the January Uprising'.

This year's 150th jubilee of the January Uprising is a unique occasion to present to a broader public the reconstructed and digitalized edition of the first film adaptation of the novel "Faithful river" written by Stefan Żeromski.

The first screenings, together with live score written by Michał Lorenc performed by DesOrient ensemble, took place from 5th to 7th April in the Iluzjon cinema in Warsaw – the Art Museum.

Following almost two yers of intensive work of the NITROFILM project – conservation and digitalization of movies from the interwar period in the National Film Archive in Warsaw, financed by the EU, all surviving parts of this oldest Polish movie adaptation of a literary work have been completed. Much indicates that the reconstructed copy matches the original version. "YEAR 1863" has been pickes up as the fourth title to be released by the National Film Archive on DVD in the POLISH CINEMA FROM THE "GREAT MUTE" PERIOD series.
