Polish Filmmakers NYC and Polish Club at Columbia University invite you to a special screening of Piotr Szulkins O-BI, O-BA: THE END OF CIVILIZATION, followed by a discussion panel.

O-BI, O-BA: THE END OF CIVILIZATION (1984) is Piotr Szulkin's underseen masterpiece: a darkly funny vision of post-nuclear wasteland to rival such classics of sci-fi allegory as PLANET OF THE APES and THX1138.

The panel will be hosted by MichaƂ Oleszczyk, programmer for Polish Filmmakers NYC and the artistic director of Gdynia Film Festival.

The panelists will include:

Simon Abrams (RogerEbert.com, The Village Voice)

Eliza Cushman Rose (Columbia University)

Stuart Liebman (CUNY)

Richard Porton (Cineaste)

Stephanie Zacharek (The Village Voice)
