|Hot Dog Vender||ANDRZEJ CHYRA|
|An obsessively jealous husband, his sexy wife-actress, a sneaky Hollywood director, a happy-go-lucky drug dealer, a girl and her beloved dog, a hot-dog vendor with a vague past, a frustrated student on a risky mission, a mountaineer cleaning hotel windows, an elderly painter, a crew of paramedics with an unusual problem and a group of hungry nuns. A cross-section of the inhabitants of a modern city whose lives and passions are intertwined. An unexpected chain of events will decide the fate of many of them in just eleven minutes.11 Minutes feels like a roller coaster ride, as our attention moves rapidly amongst the various stories. The film is kinetic, frantic at times, contemplative at others, all in the service o a work that reflects the fragmented nature of our modern world.|

One exhibit of note will be a replica display of the finely crafted armor used by the 17th Century Polish Winged Hussars.
The Polish way to say “Folk dancing in the street, music, yummy food, and more!” is Zabawa na calego! (Pronounced: Zabava na tsawego!) You already know that, right?
