As promised at the last OKO meeting: 'Czeski Sen' and more...

Something to keep you busy while OKO is on hiatus till January - sorry, couldn't find any of them with English subtitles; if you know about a copy with subtitles, let me know..

Delightful young film on YouTube, cut and pasted in 9 pieces. How is it Polish?  Well, it isn't, except for the Polish text read over the film.  But it's quite Slavic, and it could happen in Poland or anywhere - quite a gem.  Enjoy it here:

The Polish Book Club in Seattle this coming Saturday is doing a book by K. Kutz 'Piata Strona Swiata' ('The Fifth Corner of the World). While at it, watch this Silesian wonder, named 'Angelus' by Lech Majewski, a metaphysical comedy from Slask. I grew up there: in Myslowice, at the very triangle of three emperors.  My sister had a 'dzialke'-garden right at the triangle...

  1. Aleks, thank you for mentioning our book club meeting tomorrow. I hope to see you there!
    "Angelus" is very interesting, indeede as are the other films by Majewski. He came to Seattle at least three times, I think (I did an interview with him) He even had a retrospective here at SIFF which was very good. Definitely, his movies are good.

  5. I saw Czeski Sen. Thank, aleks, for the link. It is interesting.
    There is another interesting filmm by Marcel Lozinski "Jak to sie robi" which shows a different kind of manipulation: how to make a person popular in politics. This would be a good candidate for OKO, don't you think?
