right left with heels by pilgrim/majewska

Don’t miss the US premiere of the controversial new Polish play that recounts the story of the holocaust and post-war Poland from the ironic perspective of a pair of high heel shoes that once belonged to Magda Goebbels. The shoes are put on trial in Nuremberg, then constantly change owners over the next decades, bearing witness to the convulsions of Polish history from the chaos of post-war Europe through the Communist occupation, the rebirth of democracy during Solidarity in the 80s, to today’s frightening rise of the new right.

right left with heels by pilgrim/majewska is featured in the recent anthology (A)pollonia: Twenty-First Century Polish Drama and Texts for the Stage, edited by Krystyna Duniec, Joanna Klass, and Joanna Krakowska, and available now on Amazon:

Itay Tiran, Agnieszka Zulewska, Andrzej Grabowski, Tomasz Schuchardt, Adam Woronowicz
DIRECTOR:
Marcin Wrona
Newly arrived from England to marry his fiancee Zaneta (Agnieszka Zulewska), Peter (Israeli actor Itay Tiran, Lebanon) meets his in-laws-to-be for the first time, who have given the couple their ramshackle country house in rural Poland. It’s a total fixer-upper, and while inspecting the premises on the eve of the wedding, he falls into a pile of skeletal remains. The ceremony proceeds, but strange things begin to happen. During the wild reception, Peter’s behavior becomes increasingly erratic, and it eventually becomes apparent that he has been possessed by the spirit of a dead woman, a dybbuk, the iconic ancient figure from Jewish folklore, who has unsettled affairs to reckon with. Tiran as Peter is terrific, going from romantic young groom to host of frightening fits, much to the shame of his new father-in-law (Andrzej Grabowski), and the horror of his bride. The final film by late director/co-writer Marcin Wrona is genuinely creepy and unexpected, with a streak of dark humor as the wedding celebration turns into a shambles. Winner of the Best Horror Feature award at the 2015 Austin Fantastic Fest. (Partially subtitled)

“ALL THESE SLEEPLES NIGHTS” (Wszystkie nieprzespane noce) film by Michal Marczak @ The Nuart Theatre
Apr 7 @ 7:30 pm – 9:00 pm

alltheseFriday, April 7 at 7:30 Screening Q & A with director Michal Marczak

***

Filmmaker Michał Marczak challenges the fly-on-the-wall traditions of observational documentary cinema by carefully “casting” his subjects and then, together with his characters, creates a new immersive narrative. Many of us know the freedom of our twenties—unfettered by responsibilities or mortality, inventing ourselves in the rush of the moment. All These Sleepless Nights viscerally summons that feeling, chronicling life across two Warsaw summers when students Kris (Krzysztof Bagiński) and Michal (Michał Huszcza) resolve to experience life to the limit. After Kris, our sensitive yet perpetually inquisitive hero, breaks up with his long-time girlfriend Eva (Eva Lebuef), anything seems possible. He and Michal, handsome and wide-eyed, roam the metropolis at night, floating from encounter to encounter, with only instinct and desire as their captain. As they chain-smoke, drink, and party with abandon, big ideas are as palpable as the romance and sex in the air. In a profound and compelling celebration of cinema, Marczak captures the very heart and soul of a generation awake enough to dance to their dreams. (Partially subtitled)

BREAKING THE LIMITS
NAJLEPSZY
2017, 108 min, Poland, Dir: Lukasz Palkowski

Previously known as THE FASTEST, this uplifting biopic about one man’s remarkable transformation tells the true story of Jerzy Gorski, former junkie turned athletic champion. After spending 13 years struggling with heroin addiction, Gorski underwent intense physical and mental rehabilitation to become Poland’s Double Ironman World Champion. Director Lukasz Palkowski spares none of the gritty details in this realistic yet inspiring account of Gorski’s journey. The film was a major blockbuster in its native Poland, as well as winning Best Production Design and Best Debut Actor (actress Kamila Kaminska) at the Polish Film Awards.

Bravery

In 1940, the Polish Underground wanted to know what was happening inside the recently opened Auschwitz concentration camp. Polish army officer Witold Pilecki volunteered to be arrested by the Germans and report from inside the camp. His intelligence reports, smuggled out in 1941, were among the first eyewitness accounts of Auschwitz atrocities: the extermination of Soviet POWs, its function as a camp for Polish political prisoners, and the “final solution” for Jews. Pilecki received brutal treatment until he escaped in April 1943; soon after, he wrote a brief report. This book is the first English translation of a 1945 expanded version. In the foreword, Poland’s chief rabbi states, “If heeded, Pilecki’s early warnings might have changed the course of history.” Pilecki’s story was suppressed for half a century after his 1948 arrest by the Polish Communist regime as a “Western spy.” He was executed and expunged from Polish history. Pilecki writes in staccato style but also interjects his observations on humankind’s lack of progress: “We have strayed, my friends, we have strayed dreadfully…. We are a whole level of hell worse than animals!”
