Komeda : a soundtrack for life ( visu )
1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 70 libraries worldwide
Krzysztof Komeda, jazz pianist and film composer. With compositions like the lullaby for "Rosemary's Baby" from Roman Polanski, Komeda succeeded in writing his own chapter in the history of soundtracks. As a jazz musician he gained cult-status in Poland. As a film composer he made it into Hollywood's first ranks. But there his career came to a sudden end. The film essay 'Komeda -- A soundtrack for a life" is a reflection on Komeda's soundtracks, which changed the common film scores forever. It is a contemporary document about the attitude to life in a time of social, political and cultural change after war, about work and exodus of Polish artist in the 50s and 60s. Directors who worked with Komeda and who are also friends will talk about him: Roman Polanski, Jerzy Skolimowski, Henning Carlsen and Andrzej Wajda. His wife, Zofia Komeda, and his sister, Irena Orlowska, remember him

Ambulance ( visu )
3 editions published in 2007 in Polish and No Linguistic Content and held by 20 libraries worldwide
In this haunting short fiction film, a group of Jewish children and their teacher are herded into an ambulance by Nazis; the vehicle, ordinarily representing comfort and safety, becomes the group's death chamber. Morgenstern's presentation of the incident serves as a metaphor for the horror of the Holocaust and provides a powerful trigger for discussion of the disturbing issues raised by the film. The figure of the children's teacher specifically parallels Janusz Korčak (1879-1942), a famous Jewish educator who ran an orphanage in the Warsaw Ghetto and died with his young charges at Treblinka

4 editions published between 1961 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 19 libraries worldwide
Ambulance ( visu )
1 edition published in 2000 in No Linguistic Content and held by 14 libraries worldwide
"This classic film depicts the essence of the Holocaust in one single incident: the gassing of unsuspecting, innocent school children, using an ambulance to lead them to their death. The ambulance, symbol of good, is used for evil as the viewer enters the phantasmagoric world of evil and watches the reactions of the children, their teacher and the German executioners. Unencumbered by dialogue, the film uses only the visual to create a story of lasting impact." --Container
