Komeda a soundtrack for life ( visu )
1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 30 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 )
4 editions published in 2007 in Polish and No Linguistic Content and held by 28 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

Bariera = La barrière by Jerzy Skolimowski( visu )
5 editions published between 1966 and 2010 in Polish and Undetermined and held by 10 libraries worldwide
The central character is a young medical student who decides to give up his studies in a search for more immediate material success. The title refers to the barrier between the generations, the generation which celebrates Polish heroism in World War II and the younger generation disenchanted with the Poland of the fifties and sixties. Skolimowski's free-wheeling blend of the symbolic and the surreal transforms Warsaw into an unreal world analogous to the mental landscape of the hero. Komeda's strikingly original music underscores Skolimowski's bitter romanticism. At one point the central character wraps a photograph of Skolimowski around his face to signify that Skolimowski originally intended to play this character himself in semi-autobiographical continuity with his earlier film 'Walkover'
Contre la montre... Jerzy Skolimowski, peintre, poète, cinéaste by Damien Bertrand( visu )
3 editions published between 2007 and 2013 in Polish and held by 10 libraries worldwide
En exergue, une déclaration de Jerzy Skolimowski, dans laquelle il exprime la douleur de lexil. Linterdiction de "Haut les mains !" lobligea, en effet, à quitter définitivement la Pologne en 1967 et à vivre "en gitan". L'interview du cinéaste, peintre et poète, cadré en plan serré devant l'une de ses toiles, est entrecoupée d'extraits de ses films et de lectures en voix off de ses poèmes. Si lentretien naborde pas la question de lexil, elle le vêt néanmoins dun voile d'un noir identique aux toiles du cinéaste, découvertes en fin de documentaire dans une exposition. L'?uvre multiforme de Skolimowski n'est pas pour autant tournée vers la mort ; à limage de Jeremy Irons, qui se démène pour manger à sa faim dans "Travail au noir" (1982), l'artiste décrit avant tout sa lutte pour exister. Avec cet ancien boxeur, la métaphore est souvent sportive. Il évoque ainsi le combat mené contre son côté sombre et la vie qui court trop vite : très beau, ce moment où il se met en garde, les poings serrés, et regarde la caméra dun ?il torve. De même, il entend saisir les moments de l'existence où tout peut encore basculer. Pied de nez au critique du "New York Times" qui avait éreinté "Rysopis" en 1965, le documentaire en cite intégralement la séquence la plus polémique, une longue descente dans des escaliers où le personnage peut encore décider de ne pas sengager dans larmée

Mia Farrow in Rosemary's baby Rosemaries Baby by Ira Levin( visu )
5 editions published between 1967 and 2001 in German and Arabic and held by 8 libraries worldwide
Das junge Ehepaar Rosemarie und Guy Woodhouse zieht trotz Wahrnung eines Freundes in ein düsteres New Yorker Mietshaus. Dort sollen schreckliche Dinge vorgefallen sein. Doch zunächst ist das Paar glücklich mit der neuen Wohnung, an der höchstens die Nachbarn nerven: Die alten Castavets sind zwar reizend, aber ziemlich aufdringlich. Da träumt Rosemarie, sie würde von einem Monster vergewaltigt. Bald darauf ist sie schwanger, und das Grauen nimmt seine Lauf. Die sensible Frau beobachtet mysteriöse Dinge in der Wohnung, die Nachbarn jagen ihr panische Angst ein, und selbst beim eigenen Ehemann findet sie kein Gehör. Rosemaries Gefühle schwanken hin und her - ist sie einer diabolischen Verschwörung ausgesetzt? Oder leidet sie, wie der Doktor und ihr Gatte meinen, an hysterischen Trugbildern, die die überreizten Sinne ihr vorgaukeln? Erst die haarsträubende Geburt bringt die nackte Wahrheit ans Licht
