SCREENING

Hands Up!

Ongoing

35mm print courtesy of the Polish Cultural Institute. With Jerzy Skolimowski, Joanna Szczerbic, Tadeusz Lomnicki, Alan Bates. Initially banned, released as it was in 1967, at the height of Stalinism, Hands Up! was rereleased in 1981. Adding 25 minutes to his original film, Skolimowski was able to include a first-person prologue that recontextualizes the film, and to incorporate his response to the recent political climate. Considered by Skolimowski himself to be his best film, Hands Up! is an effective portrait of personal and national identity.

Free with Museum admission.
