In Camouflage by Krzysztof Zanussi, Jaroslaw and Jakub clash over politics and education at a university summer linguistics camp in Communist Poland. Jaroslaw, a young liberal professor, allows a student whose views drift from the official line to attend the seminar, and Jakub, a manipulator, is furious. As awards are given out at the end of the camp, there is tension between the faculty as mediocre students who stick to the Party line are given top nods. With an introduction by Jaroslaw Kuisz, editor of Kultura Liberalna. Polish language with English subtitles. (2K DCP presentation)
U.S. Premiere 2K DCP screening!
The Cinema of Moral Disquiet
Polish directors coalesced into "The Cinema of Moral Disquiet" (kino moralnego niepokoju) looked deep into the origins of morality. From 1976 to 1981, these filmmakers created tightly-focused stories of individuals forced to work through their beliefs and values in a politically- charged world of ambiguities, with morality prioritized behind personal ambition and expediency. The films are sponsored by the Department of Polish Studies, Themester, College of Arts and Sciences, Russian & Eastern European Institute and IU Cinema.
