The Importance of Voting your Heart out
I'm getting considerable amount of pressure to choose movies for viewing, instead of putting them up for a vote. As I'm reluctantly inching in that direction, I would at least like to be an informed leader/dictator (depending which part of of bossing you around you prefer), and know your general tastes in films: Old? New? Documentaries? Surprise Me? So far I'm definitely not in sync, because I would never guess that 'Strike' would get majority of votes for September; I put it up for vote because of the Solidarity round anniversary, but didn't think anybody would want to watch 2 documentaries in a row (our August film, "The Peretzniks" was also a documentary).
To help you vote I asked Asia in Poland (she is a film school graduate, and the author of the October OKO film choices) to share with us how she arrived at those four movies (from 309 Polish-themed films she looked up at Scarecrow Video website).
Below is her response (English version google translated, slightly human-improved; why does google think 'Zurek' = 'Matthew Brown'?)
