Special shows: "The Story of Film - Film Odyssey" and "Shirley – Visions of Reality"

Mark Cousins is an Irish writer, film critic and a director of ‘The Story of Film - Film Odyssey’. This monumental work is  composed of  15 episodes, each lasting one hour.  The work is based on his intriguing book from 2004, and is a subjective, multidimensional vision of the history of cinema. An author proposes a fresh look at the obvious film heritage, recalling several hundred major works - from short production of Lumière brothers to the ultra-modern ‘Inception’. Cousins’ movie is not aesthetically clear school lecture, but the truest adventure, a journey through time and space. We invite you in this long journey from now on, every day at 16.00, until 28th July in New Horizons's Cinema room No. 6. Mark Cousins will be the guest of Paweł T. Felis in Gazeta Cafe, 24th July at 19.00 on the summer scene of Teatr Lalek.

The Special Screenings will also include film by Gustav Deutsch titled ‘Shirley - Visions of reality’. Deutsch is the Austrian director who specializes in found footage, video artist, architect, musician, photographer and author of ‘Film ist. a girl & a gun’ (screened at 9. New Horizons Festival) . This time author found the source material in paintings of Edward Hopper. ‘Shirley - Visions of reality’ is an invitation into the paintings, into the world animated by director,  respecting visual genius that fits discreetly into the film medium. An author of photos is Jerzy Palacz – Polish operator, who collaborated with Ulricha Seidl and Goran Źrebic. The film has already been screened at this year's Berlinale in the Forum, the Image Forum Festival 2013 in Tokyo, Munich DOK.fest 2013 and IndieLisboa 2013. We invite you to a screening in the New Horizons's Cinema room No. 5 today at 19.00 and for the next shows: 20th, 26th and 27th July at 19.00.
