With Paweł Łoziński in person
Dir. Pawel Łoziński. 1992, 47 mins. Łoziński’s first major work follows Henryk Greenberg, a Polish-born American who lost much of his family in the Holocaust, as he returns to the village of his childhood. Visiting locations where his father and younger brother were seized and subsequently murdered, Greenberg encounters former neighbors who claim to have little memory of what transpired. But soon their recollections come more easily.
Dir. Pawel Łoziński. 1999, 12 mins. Łoziński’s celebrated, delicate study of familial love centers on a single walk made by two elderly sisters inside their city– block’s courtyard. From envy to the need for control, Sisters celebrates love and companionship while remaining attentive to its pains.
