On Thursday, 15 of September, at 6 PM, we would like to invite you to the Prologue of the Festival. A new film by Werner Herzog ‚Lo and Behold: Reveries of the Connected World’ will start our monthly meetings with a documentary film. Free entrance.
Werner Herzog (Fitzcarraldo, The Enigma of Kaspar Hauser) – an author of feature and documentary films – in his latest film explores the Internet. He begins this journey where it has all begun – we find ourselves in a room of the University of California, where the first email was sent in 1969. According to numerous scholars that was the beginning of a new age for humanity – the digital era …
A film expert, Bartosz Zając, will analyse the film. Before the main screening we will show you a 12-minute documentary ‚Computers’ by Krzysztof Zanussi, which was produced in 1967 in Educational Films Studio in Łódź and which starred Marek Piwowski, a jury member of this year’s Festival.
Every month we will invite you to similar meetings with a documentary film at the Film Museum. Our next proposal: 13 October, 6 pm ‚Human’, dir. Yann Arthus-Bertrand.
