Movie Info

Historia Kina W Popielawach is a bucolic family tale, full of irony and heavily entwined with the invention of the moving picture. The narrator is a ten-year old boy who, during the sixties, is sent from the town to visit his grandparent's village, Popielawy. Roughly one hundred years before -- almost a quarter of a century before Edison and the Lumiere Brothers -- the village blacksmith invented a cinematographic apparatus by which he was able to project images drawn onto the bladders of fish and pigs, making them "come to life." A hundred or so years later, the blacksmith's great-grandson Szustek is determined to re-construct his ancestor's machine, despite opposition from his father. Director Jan Jakub Kolski comes from a family which has long been passionate about cinema; his grandparents opened one of the first cinemas in Lodz in 1907, and also produced films. Historia Kina W Popielawach features autobiographical elements, mixing what is remembered with what is imagined to be remembered. The film was screened as part of the Panorama section of the 49th International Berlin Film Festival, 1999. ~ Gönül Dönmez-Colin, Rovi
