Redcurrants
Tam, gdzie rosną porzeczki
dir. Leo Kantor / Poland 2011 / 34’
subtitles: English

Cast

Leo Kantor

Film description

An interesting hybrid: a documentary monodrama. Leo Kantor, a Polish Jew who escaped death during World War II and who had to emigrate following the events of March 1968, is on stage, talking about the time of his youth: about matters big and small, about moments that vanished into the stream of history. His story is enriched by photographs and archival recordings. This affirmation of life is accompanied by an awareness of its fragility.

Piotr Mirski
