Katyn to screen in Moscow today

2008-03-16

Katyń, renowned Polish director Andrzej Wajda's film about the massacre of over 20,000 Polish officers in the Soviet Union in 1940, will be screened in Moscow today through Wednesday for select audiences including artists, members of the opposition and VIPs, according to Polish Radio's external service (www.theeews.pl).

Wajda has said repeatedly he does not consider the film to be directed against Russia, but is an effort to confront the truth about one of the dark spots in Polish history.

Speaking at a meeting with students in Krakow, he said, "It was my intention to show the Bolshevik, communist, Stalinist system," according to thenews.pl.

Katyń was nominated for an Oscar in the Best Foreign-language Film category and has been a smashing success domestically, attracting about 3 million people since its premiere in September 2007.
