WOJCIECH JERZY HAS
To commemorate the 10th anniversary of the death of Wojciech Jerzy Has, one of the greatest visionaries of Polish cinema and world-famous experimental individualist, the festival audience will have an opportunity to appreciate his work. Has's worlds will live on not only on the screen, but also in discussions, readings and an exposition, prepared specifically for the festival and accompanied by an album.

 

JEAN-LUC GODARD
Another retrospective will be devoted to the artistic father of film post-modernism, who turns 80 this year, the radical, uncompromising avant-garde artist, co-founder of the French New Wave - Jean-Luc Godard. Exploring the aesthetic potential of cinema, Godard has long accepted his passion to deconstruct, destroy the comfort of naive absorption of film stories. The retrospective will be enriched by three publications: a book by Ewa Mazierska about Godard, theoretical works by Godard, and an analysis of selected films by Grzegorz Królikiewicz of the Łódź film school.

 

QUAY BROTHERS
Among the festival's guests will be the creators of marionette animation, contemporary surrealists, inspired often by the prose of Bruno Schulz, the American Stephen and Timothy Quay, who will also have a dedicated retrospective. Their latest film Maska, an adaptation of a short story by Stanisław Lem will be screened, too. The retrospective of Quay Brothers' work will be supplemented by an installation Dormitorium and a book including a lengthy interview and essays on the artists' output.

 

 

LAURA MULVEY
