Zemsta ( visu )

"Two 17th century aristocratic families, due to decline in their ancestral legacies, inhabit separate parts of a crumbling castle and thrive on making each other miserable. The feuding noblemen try to outwit one another for romance and control over their extravagant realm while their family members pursue their selfish interests of greed and lust. Thwarted lovers, mistaken identity, closed-door couplings and long simmering feuds abound in this delightful farce!"--Container

Ambulance ( visu )
5 editions published in 2007 in Polish and No Linguistic Content and held by 30 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
