(Un)ordinary Manhattan

Manhattan in Wrocław is one of the most recognizable buildings in the city. The pre-premiere screening of the film will take place in the Grunwaldzki Passage, which has become one of the main characters.
The story of Wroclaw Manhattan consists of 16 stories, into which the documentary has been divided, referring to the 16 floors of the skyscraper. During the screening we will learn who Wrocław's Manhattan really is and what human stories it is woven of.
It is not only the beauty of the architecture of this Wrocław housing estate, but also interesting stories of the people who live there. The film consists of 16 stories from 16 floors, talking about the residents, architecture, photographer Kris Nidenthal and his heroine. Jadwiga Grabowska-Hawrylak could not of course be missing from the documentary, without her courage and architectural imagination Wrocław would not be the same city.
