Three events are being held in Warsaw to honor Hervé Guibert, the late 20th century French writer, director and photographer best known for his novel To the Friend Who Did Not Save My Life.

The M25 club at 25 Miñska St. is premiering a play based on Guibert's two autobiographical novels To the Friend Who Did Not Save My Life and The Compassion Protocol Feb. 22. The Muranów cinema at 1 Gen. Andersa St. will be screening L'homme blessé (The Wounded Man), one of French director Patrice Chereau's most provocative films for which Guibert wrote the script. Finally, a selection of Guibert's photography is being exhibited at the Luksfera gallery at 56 Z±bkowska St. in Warsaw's Praga district.

Guibert's last novels described his struggle with AIDS. These works were among the first to break the silence and cultural taboos surrounding the illness. The play based on To the Friend Who Did Not Save My Life is an international collaboration between a Polish theater company, a French set designer, Magala Murbach, and Czech costume designers Radana and Pavel Ivancic.
