Poznan

Mr. and Mrs. Kalinowski

  ul. Piątkowska 92     20 Jun 2018
Out in the boonies, this work by Poznań University of Fine Arts graduate Justyna Zawistowska portrays Poznań's most famous film-loving couple, Maria and Bogdan Kalinowski. The pair, together since 1973, watched over 14 000 films in the city's cinemas, never missing a new release and carefully recording each outing. Very much recognizable locally, they even became the subjects of two documentaries: Absolute Record (Rekord absolutny, 1998) and One Day Closer to Cinema (Jeden dzień bliżej kina, 2002). Sadly Bogdan passed away in 2017, leaving Maria to continue watching films on her own.

Justyna's other works painted on the same building include sharply-dressed Leia and Vader, the Cookie Monster, and a breakdancing dude.
