TONY HALIK. BORN FOR ADVENTURE + THE LAND OF WHIM
DOCUMENATARY

2020, 90 min, Poland
Polish with English subtitles
dir. Marcin Borchardt

Who was Tony Halik? A traveler, journalist, filmmaker. His life's adventures seem as unlikely as those of Indiana Jones. In the last decade of the Cold War, extremely popular TV programs were the proverbial "only window on the world" for millions of Poles. Outside of Poland, practically unknown, in the 60's and 80's, he appeared in some strange way everywhere in the world where something important was happening. He knew everyone, filmed everyone, everyone wanted to talk to him: Fidel Castro, Queen Elizabeth, Evita Peron, Richard Nixon.

Tony Halik, za pomoca swoich kultowych programow przenosil co wieczor miliony Polakow w miejsca, ktore im sie nawet nie snily. Film opowiada o jego zyciu, przygodach oraz wszelkiego rodzaju przeciwnosciach, ktorym musial stawiac czolo na kazdym kroku. Halik, jak przystalo na wytrawnego gawedziarza, lubil publicznie podkoloryzowac to i owo. Dzis trudno dociec, co z tego, o czym mowil wydarzyo sie naprawde, a co jest jedynie poklosiem jego nieokielznanej wyobrazni i poczucia humoru.

ANIMATION

The Land of Whim (Kaprysia)
dir. Betina Brozek [2019, 9]

The main character in the film, is a planet invented by the director. Animation is the image of a land ruling by a whim. Everything that exists on the planet is unobvious, chaotic, and changes its shapes and properties. Mutual penetration and transformation of forms, change of places of creatures and objects - these are words that can be used to describe the character of the film. Despite the apparent mess that prevails on the planet, it is a happy place - clear and pure colors prevail in it. The picture of the strange and fairy-tale reality created by the author is an explosion of joy and surrealism.
