The international documentary film festival MILLENIUM is celebrating its ninth edition. Whether this prominent festival in Brussels is shining the spotlight on up-and-coming directors or those whose reputations go before them, the type of guests is as broad as the programme, with films from every continent, which always bring together quality and diversity.
This year, two Polish films are on the programme: You Have no Idea How Much I Love You (Nawet nie wiesz, jak bardzo Cię kocham) by Paweł Łoziński, and Don Juan by Jerzy Śladkowski. Paweł Łoziński will come to Brussels on 28 March for a Q&A with the public and masterclass after the film.
After the screening of the film You Have no Idea How Much I Love You on Tuesday 28 March there will be the masterclass Experiment in documentary conducted by the director Paweł Łoziński and the editor Dorota Wardęszkiewicz.

Paweł Łoziński

Paweł Łoziński is a Polish director, cameraman and producer of documentary films. He graduated from the Directing Department at the Film School in Lodz. He lectures in documentary film direction at the National Film School in Lodz and Gdynia Film School. Łoziński is the author of more than 20 award-winning documentary films at international festivals. He makes distinct and emotionally charged documentaries about people of whom he draws intimate portraits. He is also the author of photography to many of his films. In his films, he is interested in the intricacies of relationships, asks difficult questions about human existence, and, without compromising the dignity of his characters, breaks down barriers and taboos to show close-to-the-bone human issues. He pushes the boundaries of the genre by placing the camera where it is seemingly forbidden, in an often unexplored no man's land.

Don Juan (Poland, 2015, 92 min, OV - sub EN/FR)
Twenty-two-year-old Oleg doesn’t live up to his mother’s expectations, Marina. She thinks of him as a “autistic loafer”, he does not correspond to her masculine ideal. Oleg doesn’t have friends and is scared of having a romantic or sexual relationship. Marina subjects him to a series treatments more absurd one than the other in order to pull him from his lethargic state. Oleg’s salvation eventually comes from an unexpected source: theatre.
