THE WHALE FROM LORINO + THE ANTARCTIC SYNDROME
DOCUMENATARIES

THE WHALE FROM LORINO
2019, 70 min, Poland
Polish with English subtitles
dir. Maciej Cuske

This story is about the people who inhabit one of the most severe and inaccessible spots on Earth, the Chukchi Peninsula, which is located on the north eastern edge of Eurasia, on the Bering and Chukchi Seas, separated by a narrow strait from Alaska. Humans and whales have inhabited it for thousands of years. The different heroes within the community are united by an ancient tradition of hunting for the whales. Individual characters tell the story: Wowa the hunter, Lizaveta the museum curator, Irina the owner of the only shop in the village of Inczoun Irina. They are all guardians of this mysterious corner of the world. Their stories will allow us to understand why they want to keep away from the modern world and save this magic place.

Dla mieszkancow syberyjskich rubiezy, gdzie czas jak gdyby stanal w miejscu, ciagle zywa pozostaje tradycja polowan na gigantyczne walenie. W lokalnych wierzeniach zajmuja one miejsce szczegolne, choc Czukcze, Eskimosi czy Rosjanie zyjacy dzisiaj w Lorino traktuja te wymierajace zwierzeta przede wszystkim uzytkowo. Zbiorowy rytual polowu dostarcza im pozywienia i pozwala przetrwac w trudnych warunkach. Film kontempluje wpisana w porzdek natury codziennosc Polwyspu Czukockiego i odsdania najbardziej brutalne strony zycia w tym miejscu zapomnianym przez Boga i ludzi.

THE ANTARCTIC SYNDROME
2019, 74 min, Poland
Polish with English subtiles
dir. Piotr Jaworski

The story of a forgotten, pioneering experiment of military psychologist Dr. Terelak, who studied the limits of human psyche in conditions of Antarctic isolation and could be considered one of the most unethical experimentalists. This turns out to be a story full of humor and irony, and a prologue for a reality yet to come. In the events that took place at the Polish polar base almost 40 years ago, the men experienced situations of isolation comparable to an interplanetary mission to Mars. The film reconstructs these events in the context of that epoch.

Czy profesor Jan Terelak nalezy do elitarnego grona najbardziej nieetycznych eksperymentatorow? Polski naukowiec badal granice ludzkiej wytrzymalosci psychicznej w ekstremalnych warunkach odosobnienia na Antarktydzie. Punktem wyjscia dokumentu jest dziennik psychologa. Projekt sprzed czterdziestu lat poswiecony byl badaniu stanu psychicznego polarnikow w polskiej bazie. Mezczyzni znajdowali sie w sytuacji zamkniecia, porownywalnej do misji kosmicznej. Film rekonstruuje te wydarzenia, odnoszac sie do kontekstu epoki i przemian w pojmowaniu nauki.
