Janusz Głowacki, a Polish playwright, essayist and screenwriter, emigrated to New York in 1981 right before the imposition of the martial law in Poland. The exhibition is a homage to this outstanding artist and places he lived in. Warsaw is where his creative journey began - screenplays written for Andrzej Wajda and Janusz Morgenstern, then the New York period where he wrote Antigone in New York, for which he was nominated for the Charles MacArthur Award for Outstanding New Play, followed by Moscow, where the play Fourth Sister is born, a play about "our fears, dreams, despair, hope and longing". Among exhibits are handwritten manuscripts and photographs, but most importantly film excerpts and posters - The Cruise, Walesa. Man of Hope, Cold War, etc.
