Thursday, Jul 10 at 09:00PM
Magic, dreams, a manor in decay: the Hourglass Sanatorium is one of the most original and beautiful films in Polish cinema, a visionary, artistic, poetic reflection on the nature of time and the irreversibility of death. The screenplay is an adaptation of the fantasy fiction of Jewish author Bruno Schulz, one of the most renowned Polish prose stylists of the 20th century. Reflections on the Holocaust were added to the movie, reading Schulz's work through the prism of his death during World War II.
