Ladies and gentlemen, it’s been a few days since the Grand Premiere of Zbigniew Gajzler’s documentary entitled She Wins. It took place in Pabianice on January 15, 2023, in the beautiful Helios cinema. Finally, after a year and a half of intensive work, we could see the film on the screen of the Helios cinema. The film’s premiere event was attended by many guests from Poland and abroad, which gave the event an international atmosphere. Thank you all for coming and supporting this great initiative. There is no Us without You!
Polish premiere of the film (English title SHE WINS) – Premiere in Hollywood soon.There is nothing more beautiful than the great success of a work in which you put your whole heart and soul. The Polish premiere of The film She Wins directed by Zbigniew Gajzler in collaboration with the Hollywood producer Anna Davis with music by Michał Lorenc exceeded all expectations. The largest cinema hall is filled to the brim and in front of the cinema there is a crowd of people who have not been able to enter due to lack of seats. I am so happy to be a part of this very wonderful film project. A film that touches on a very delicate problem, which is alcoholism among women. Showing this topic from the psychological side, reaching the very source of the drama of many women from different social strata was a challenge, but faith in the rightness of the goal and hard work always bear fruit. Ewelina Maria Bugajska-Javorka – a world-renowned poet/ Zbigniew Gajzler
We would like to express our special thanks to the lovers of Polish cinema, who took their seats honorably to watch the touching story of Kasia Kowalska, who fights with alcohol addiction, together with the filmmakers and the organizers of the event.
Special thanks to the director of the cinema for putting forward a proposal to broadcast the film in the HELIOS cinema. It is the largest cinema chain in Poland.
Everyone who made a contribution to make the film possible, starting from the very idea of the director, actors, recording crew, Halina Rosa foundation, DESIGNER magazine, donors, and sponsors, was especially appreciated. The donors and sponsors were awarded diplomas of thanks and occasional diamonds.
The premiere event of the film was honored with her extraordinary personality by the heroine of the previous film by Zbigniew Gajzler entitled I love life, Marzenka Lewandowska.
We could write a lot, but let’s focus on the general outline and message of the film. The main character of the documentary is Kasia Kowalska, who told the viewers the true story of her life and deserves great applause here. The director repeatedly emphasized that he spent a lot of time talking with Kasia so Kasia finally agreed to present her story in public. We support Kasia with all our hearts and appreciate her courage. The goal of the director and Kasia is to save women from alcohol addiction. Alcoholism among women is growing at an astonishing rate. The film has a strong social message and is aimed at women and the young generation.
Kasia Kowalska is not only a real star but also a successful woman! She overcame her weakness and showed that you can get out of addiction. Like every POLISH MOTHER, she will do anything for her child, she decided to give up alcohol for her daughter. Today, daughter Julia is already a beautiful mature girl.

The topic of alcohol addiction is rather uncomfortable and is often taken up by great directors of world cinema, after all, they also have to take into account a possible failure, the greater the recognition of their courage.
