KinoPolska / Guest: Jan P. Matuszyński


Two well-regarded feature debuts form the focus of KinoPolska in October. OSTATNIA RODZINA (The Last Family, Jan P. Matuszyński, Poland 2016, 10.10., with guest Jan P. Matuszyński) Zdzisław Beksiński, a painter of dark, surrealist scenes, lives with his mentally unstable son, a popular radio DJ, and his selfless wife Zofia, who keeps the family together, in a high-rise apartment in Warsaw. Rooted in pitch-black humor, the film is the portrait of an eccentric painter, a tribute to an unconventional family and the chronicle of a country over a period of three decades.  NÓŻ W WODZIE (Knife in the Water, Roman Polanski, Poland 1962, 11.10., with an introduction by Jan P. Matuszyński) A parable and psychological chamber drama on a sailing boat. A married couple invite a young student to spend a weekend with them. The cramped conditions produce a tension-filled love triangle. (mg)
