New Digital Restoration!

Faraon (1965) dir Jerzy Kawalerowicz w/Jerzy Zelnik, Wiesława Mazurkiewicz, Barbara Bryslska, Krystyna Mikolajewska, Ewa Krzyżewska, Piotr Pawłowski, Leszek Herdegen [153 min; DCP]
Something unexpected from Poland in the 1960s: a historical epic set in Ancient Egypt, complete with massive battle scenes and stunningly choreographed musical pieces, about the young ruler Ramses XIII. Riddled with psychological, moral, and philosophical questions on the nature of power, the film was heavily cut for international release. Now restored to its original form, PHARAOH brandishes its heroism as a weapon – teaching all that noble defeat is better than silence in the face of morally corrupt politics.
