Three films by Marek Piwowski /
Krzysztof Zanussi / Wojciech Marczewski
Poland, 1970 / 1976 / 1981


The third volume of our Polish Cinema Classics series incorporates three of the finest Polish films of the 1970s and 80s. All three films are presented from new HD digital transfers with restored picture and sound.

The Cruise (Rejs)
(Marek Piwowski, 1970)

Regarded as Polish cinema's first 'cult' film, Piwowski's absurdist comedy is a satire of life in the (then) People's Republic of Poland.

Camouflage (Barwy ochronne)
(Krzysztof Zanussi, 1976)
A milestone in Polish cinema which probes into the moral fabric of the society underlying Poland's regime.

Shivers (Dreszcze)
(Wojciech Marczewski, 1981)
A coming-of-age story set in a 1950s Stalinist youth camp, Marczewski's film daringly explores themes of erotic and political fascinations.

Story of My Death

(Història de la meva mort)
A film by Albert Serra
Spain, 2013


Award-winning Catalan filmmaker Albert Serra has established himself as one of the most original and iconoclastic voices in contemporary cinema.
His deliciously eccentric 2013 film Story of My Death (winner of the prestigious Golden Leopard prize at the 2013 Locarno Film Festival) imagines a meeting between the ageing Casanova and Count Dracula to chart the collision between the eighteenth century of Enlightenment, rationalism and libertine sensuality and a nineteenth century founded upon Romanticism, obscurantism and violence.

The Girl from Hunan Still

"Story of My Death is a singular work, and its originality is apparent in every frame... This is a film of dazzling vitality and animation"
Village Voice


"Story of My Death is a truly esoteric and unique work, something contemporary, yet totally free of constraints of time and space. The trappings might be historical and mythical, but [Serra's] playground is cinematic language" CinemaScope

"Vivaciously minimalist but visually breathtaking, it's a rarefied cinematic luxury"
Melbourne International Film Festival


Release date: 2015
