The Art of Loving (Poland, 2017, 117 min, OV Eng subtitles)
The film tells the story of Michalina Wisłocka, a gynaecologist who achieved the impossible. With her book “The Art of Love” she revolutionised the sexual life of communist Poland. Before she could publish the book, she had to go a long way fighting conservative stereotypes, pervasive ignorance and censorship.
