After 30 years Zbigniew Boniek returns to Barcelona! The documentation from Akcja Boniek! will be presented in the frame of this year Screen from Barcelona Festival.

On Sunday October 14th 2007 in the presence of hundreds of spectators Massimo Furlan, a Swiss performer made a one-man reconstruction of one of the most spectacular football matches in the history of the Polish team: Poland-Belgium (3:0) at the 1982 FIFA World Cup in Barcelona. This match gave the Polish football team third place at the World Cup in Spain. Massimo Furlan brought back the famous game from the “choreographic” point of view of the key football player - Zbigniew Boniek, who was named by FIFA as one of the 100 best-ever players. The reconstruction was commented live by Tomasz Zimoch – brilliant polish sport commentator. Furlan as Boniek deftly followed the action perfectly synchronized with Zimoch’s commentary.

Action opened a series of perfomativ events the Finissage of Satdion X and Jarmark Europa Market – the biggest and spontaneous market in Eastern Europe around the symbolic stadium created over the debris of Warsaw uprising.
