Ljubljana's Congress Square turning into open-air cinema

Ljubljana, 27 August - The capital's Congress Square will turn into an open-air cinema for four nights starting today. The free screenings of film classics will begin with the first Slovenian feature film Na Svoji Zemlji (On Our Own Land).

The screening of a remastered copy of the 1948 film, directed by France Štiglic and celebrating Slovenian anti-fascist and anti-nazi resistance during WWII, will start at 9 PM.

While marking the 70th anniversary of the film, which also made the competition section in Cannes, the event is also an homage to Štefka Drolc, one of the most celebrated Slovenian actresses, who died earlier this year.

Kinodvor, Ljubljana's art-house cinema, picked three more movies for the venue. Stanley Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey is scheduled for Tuesday, Ingmar Bergman's Summer with Monika for Wednesday and the 1968 concert film Monterey Pop by D. A. Pennebaker on Thursday.
