MAGICAL MOUNTAIN. AMERICAN PORTRAIT OF CZESLAW MILOSZ
CZARODZIEJSKA GÓRA. AMERYKANSKI PORTRET CZESLAWA MILOSZA
2000, 60 min, Poland
Polish with English subtitles
Dir. MARIA ZMARZ-KOCZANOWICZ

Utilizing interviews with his friends and colleagues this documentary film about Nobel Prize winner Czeslaw Milosz is drawn against the background of American culture.  Respected by fellow professors, admired by his students, Milosz was perceived as a lonely person.  He spent evenings writing letters to himself that he would then mail.  Alcohol was on of his problems.  This documentary portrait of the poet conveys the unique point of view of his American literary and academic colleagues to which are added the recollections of his wife and his grandchildren.
