Komeda : a soundtrack for life( Visual )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 131 WorldCat member 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

Parviendront-ils à sortir indemnes de ce lieu peuplé de créatures étranges, mais aux préoccupations pourtant bien terrestres, ou serviront-ils, ainsi que la jolie villageoise qui les accompagne (Sharon Tate), de tendres desserts au repas vampiresque du bal annuel ?..."

Ambulance by Ivahn Schoorman( Visual )

4 editions published between 2000 and 2007 in Polish and No Linguistic content and held by 37 WorldCat member 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
