'People with no Tomorrow' ('Ludzie bez jutra') explores actual events that took place 125 years ago, namely the ill-starred love affair between Polish actress Maria Wisnowska and Russian cavalry officer Alexander Bartenev.
The Russian hussar killed his lover in a notorious crime passionnel in June 1890 at the actress's Warsaw apartment.
The film, by noted director Aleksander Hertz, premiered in 1921, but it was only recently rediscovered in Germany's Bundesarchiv.
A freshly restored copy will be screened on 15 December at Warsaw's Kino Iluzjon and on 16 December at Kraków's Kino Pod Baranami.(nh/rk)
