The film The Last Train To Warsaw (2019) is set in a post-apocalyptic scenery of the city of Łódź and tells of the hopeful preparations of four protagonists before their departure to Warsaw. For them, Warsaw is a place where careers are pursued, and dreams come true.
With high hopes for attaining fame as an art collective and driven by a past of fading success and precarious life, all efforts are vested toward the chance of a better future elsewhere. In the process, the train becomes a symbol of progress and the transition to a new, prosperous life.
The Last Train To Warsaw is a tribute to the starkly contrasting city of Łódź, where decay and splendor are side by side. The film regards the present as a momentary tension between past disappointments and future hopes, between success and failure. It shows the longing for change and the hope for a better future.
Fashion House Limanka [Dom Mody Limanka] is an artist collective founded in 2017 in Łódź, Poland. Based in a former gynecologist's practice, they also organize exhibitions, performances, concerts and fashion shows. During the premiere of The Last Train To Warsaw, Fashion House Limanka declared the bankruptcy and end of the collaboration.
