Rozbijemy zabawę

Poland 1957 / 9’

director:Roman Polański
production:PWSFTViT
sales:PWSFTViT
language:Polish

Hooligans raid a students' party organised by Polański and they start a fight. The legend goes that the director had not warned the participants of the filmed party about the planned events. All guests were convinced that Polański just wanted to record them playing and they did not expect the unwelcomed visitors.

The Elephant

director:Agnieszka Osiecka
production:PWSFTViT
sales:PWSFTViT
language:Polish

A feature étude on a short story by Sławomir Mrożek of the same title. A fictitious zoo badly needs an elephant, so someone suggests to make the animal. A giant, inflated elephant is prepared, but instead of becoming the main attraction, it flies away in front of the very eyes of schoolchildren.

The Overture

director:Marek Piwowski
production:PWSFTViT
sales:PWSFTViT
language:Polish

The first film made by Marek Piwowski while he was a second-year student at the National Film, TV & Theatre School. His observations were focused on a medical examination of young men at the Military Service Commission. The situation allowed Piwowski to expose stupidity and the callousness of the recruiting commission.

production:PWSFTViT
sales:PWSFTViT

The famous Hollywood western and historical film star visits the outskirts of Europe. He comes to the most prestigious artistic university of the country and is surprised to discover a town of western films in Targowa Street in Łódź. The film star surrenders to events and jumps on a horse prepared by his hosts. He is overcome by the Slavic fantasy of the Poles who receive him.

The Office

Urząd

Poland 1969 / 5’

production:PWSFTViT
sales:PWSFTViT
awards:FES Łódź - Polish Television Award (Łódź Department), Festiwal Etiud PWSFTViT - DKF Zygzakiem Award
language:Polish

The films starts like a portrait of the lower classes and then it changes into a cautionary metaphor. The film includes the wonderful scene of several men mindlessly watching the TV news, informing about hippies from all over the world, who gather in Naples, believing in nothing and questioning social values... With drastic means of expression, Wiszniewski managed to present entirely these antiheroes' world of only one dimension.
