Wojtek The Bear That Went to War
dir. Will Hood and Adam Lavis
Poland/UK 59 min
This is the story of Wojtek the Soldier Bear - a magnificent 500lb military bear who fought in World War Two alongside a band of Polish soldiers, shared their beer and cigarettes - and eventually their fate. Told by those that knew him, his story will capture the imagination and provide a very different perspective of the Polish war story.
The screening will be followed by a Q&A with the director and veterans who knew Wojtek
