“Volta” is a comedy with many twists featuring mischiefs, with the history playing a supporting role. In the script, which is held in contemporary Lublin, the viewer will find historical flashbacks, a mystery, a unique intrigue, the unforeseen ending, amusing dialogues and convincing characters.
It is another blockbuster which features the city of Lublin. We are pleased that the film will honour the 700th anniversary of the city charter and this why we have decided to subsidize the film project taking place in our city within the Lublin Film Fund. I hope that the film will attract lots of viewers along with plenty of tourists not only from Poland but also from other countries – says Krzysztof Żuk, Mayor of the Lublin City.
