Polish premiere
Marriage Story The Lighthouse

Robert De Niro, Al Pacino and Joe Pesci star in Martin Scorsese’s The Irishman, an epic saga of organized crime in post-war America told through the eyes of World War II veteran Frank Sheeran, a hustler and hitman who worked alongside some of the most notorious figures of the 20th century. Spanning decades, the film chronicles one of the greatest unsolved mysteries in American history, the disappearance of legendary union boss Jimmy Hoffa, and offers a monumental journey through the hidden corridors of organized crime: its inner workings, rivalries and connections to mainstream politics.

Martin Scorsese

One of the most outstanding movie directors in the world. He attended New York University’s Tisch School of Fine Arts. In 1973 he directed Mean Streets, a film which opened doors for him to a worldwide career. In 1976 Scorsese won a Golden Palm for Taxi Driver. Since then, Scorsese has remained in the filmmaking top and his next movies (e.g. Goodfellas, Raging Bull, The Color of Money, Cape Fear, The Age of Innocence, The Wolf of Wall Street) have never gone unnoticed. The Last Temptation of Christ has even caused such a controversy that the director was accused of blasphemy. Scorsese also works in television. He directed a few TV series’ episodes, commercials, and even a music video for Michael Jackson’s Bad.
