filmPOLSKA – Camera Art – Guest: Julian Kernbach

VIA CARPATIA, 2018

We are presenting two films by Polish cinematographer Julian Kernbach, who will attend the screenings. UŁASKAWIENIE (Jan Jakub Kolski, Poland 2018, 29.4.) The post-war era in Poland. Hanna and Jakub are mourning their son Wacław, who fought against the German occupying forces until 1945 and afterwards against the Communist government in Poland. A visually commanding, cinematic lament, narrated in the style of a road movie in the period just after the war, in which reference is repeatedly made to classical motifs. VIA CARPATIA (Klara Kochańska, Kasper Bajon, Poland/Czech Republic/Macedonia 2018, 30.4.) shows us the refugee crisis as a marital crisis between Piotr and Julia. One day, they find out that Piotr’s Syrian father is in refugee camp in Greece and that they are supposed to pick him up there. Laconically and as if by accident, the camera collects impressions of modern life, casual and unspectacular. A program by the Polnisches Institut Berlin.
