Program includes: Jan Lenica and Walerian Borowczyk’s Once There Was (1957); Mirosław Kijowicz’s Banner (1965); Witold Giersz’s Red and Black (1964); Kazimierz Urbański’s Sweet Rhythms (1965); Ryszard Czekala’s The Son (1970); Daniel Szczechura’s Trip (1970); Julian Józef Antonisz’s non-camera Sharp Film Invovled (1980); Jerzy Kucia’s Chips (1984); Zbigniew Rybczyński’s Oscar-winning Tango (1981); and Jerzy Kalina’s Solo in a Fallow Field (1982).
