Pawel and Wawel (Pawel i Wawel) and Night Train


With Krzysztof Kaczmarek in person

Pawel and Wawel (Dir. Krzysztof Kaczmarek. Poland/Iceland, 2014, 63 mins.In English. New York premiere. This gently absurdist and minimalist road movie follows the filmmaker’s cross-country tour through Iceland, where he presents Polish film classics. A Viking listening to Wagner, a choir of Polish nuns, beatboxers in the high season under the trees, and a singing dog are among the odd sights in this memorable short feature. Followed by Night Train (Dir. Jerzy Kawalerowicz. Poland, 1959, 99 mins. New digital restoration. With Lucyna Winnicka, Leon Niemczyk.) An overnight train to a Baltic sea resort carries a disparate cast of spurned lovers, misfits, and a murderer in this recently restored classic, now considered one of the greatest Polish films.
