We got to know the 22 projects to be presented during the next edition of When East Meets West. One of the selected titles is Man of Marble by Szymon Kuriata.

When East Meets West is a co-production forum organised by the Trieste Film Festival and the Italian FVG Audiovisual Fund. It is a meeting place for filmmakers from various parts of Europe and the world, providing an opportunity for international cooperation. The forum was attended by institutions financing film production, decision-makers from film festivals and TV stations, as well as projects selected during the application process. The next edition of When East Meets West will be held on 24–28 January.

Man of Marble is a bittersweet story about love and struggle. Remik is fighting for the love of Magda and their son Franek, while facing alcohol addiction. Magda – his ex-partner and a very young mother – has to grow up quickly to look after their baby. Together, will they manage to break out of the family's vicious cycle of alcohol addiction and give Franek a better life? Katarzyna Kuca and Aneta Zagórska from the Krakow Film Cluster producing the film.

The project was previously presented at Docs to Start.
