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

Krzysztof Komeda, a soundtrack for a life : portrait of the jazz pianist and film composer( Visual )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 26 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Soundtrack composer and jazz musician Krzysztof Komeda remembered by his colleagues and friends. 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 his career came to a sudden end. This film essay 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 a 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
