Follow a pair of carnivorous mermaid sisters drawn ashore to explore life on land in an alternate 1980s Poland. Their tantalizing siren songs and otherworldly auras make them overnight sensations as nightclub singers in the half-glam, half-decrepit world of Smoczynska's imagining. The director gives fierce teeth to her viscerally sensual, darkly feminist twist on Hans Christian Andersen's "The Little Mermaid", in which the girls' bond is tested and their survival threatened after one sister falls for a human
The big animal = Duze zwierze( Visual )

2 editions published between 2000 and 2006 in Polish and held by 257 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Big Animal (Duze Zwierze) was scripted by the late Krzysztof Kieslowski, directed by star Jerzy Stuhr, and shot in shimmering black-and-white by cinematographer Pawel Edelman (Academy Award®-nominee for Roman Polanski's The Pianist). It is a lovely, passionate film that exposes greed and pettiness while celebrating the most beautiful human themes: Love, friendship and tolerance. When the circus leaves town, Zygmunt Sawicki and his wife Marysia unwittingly adopt a camel into their family. The couple quickly forms a close bond with the nameless camel. At first the townspeople, too, are enthralled with the giant animal, since it is a welcome distraction from their everyday routine. As the bond between the couple and their camel grows stronger, the town-people suddenly begin to ostracize them ... Renowned filmmaker Krzysztof Kieslowski (The Decalogue, Three Colors Trilogy) wrote the screenplay (based on the novel, Wielblad, by Kazimierz Orlos) in the 1970s, at the height of political oppression and social upheaval during the Communist era. This hothouse environment cultivated Poland's Cinema of Moral Anxiety and subversive criticism through the arts when it was difficult to speak openly. Mr. Kieslowki's friend Elzbieta Scotti safeguarded the script of The Big Animal and after his death, returned it to his widow

2 editions published in 2016 in Polish and held by 174 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Originally made for Polish television, Dekalog focuses on the residents of a housing complex in post-Communist Poland, whose lives become subtly intertwined as they face emotional dilemmas that are at once deeply personal and universally human. Using the Ten Commandments for thematic inspiration and an overarching structure, the ten hour-long films deftly grapple with complex moral and existential questions concerning life, death, love, hate, truth, and the passage of time. Also presented are the longer theatrical versions of the series' fifth and sixth films: A short film about killing and A short film about love

"Two 17th century aristocratic families, due to decline in their ancestral legacies, inhabit separate parts of a crumbling castle and thrive on making each other miserable. The feuding noblemen try to outwit one another for romance and control over their extravagant realm while their family members pursue their selfish interests of greed and lust. Thwarted lovers, mistaken identity, closed-door couplings and long simmering feuds abound in this delightful farce!"--Container

1 edition published in 1998 in English and held by 121 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mr. Zhu is a Qiang, one of the oldest minorities in China. A few years back the young Zhu had decided to leave the hills of northern Sichuan to get a better education. A few years later, Zhu was appointed as the Director of Tourism in his own canton. He still has the will to understand and preserve the traditions of his people. Mr Zhu's job is to promote tourism in his own region. But there are a lot of renowned tourist attractions very near his own canton as the official reservations, for example, for Giant Pandas. Not only that, but the villagers in the traditional Qiang villages would love to allow modern design and architecture invade their villages, but then that would spell the doom of the traditional styles that make their religion so unique. Zhu's job is to try to convince them that the tourism attracted by their unique old-fashionedness will allow them to preserve the old Qiang tradition
Endangered civilizations( Visual )

1 edition published in 1997 in English and held by 121 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Ainus live on the remote island of Hokkaïdo. They are bearded Japanese - who aren't truly Japanese. Their origin is highly controversial, but the most likely theory is that these men and women actually came from Siberia! The Ainus are the most ancient people in this part of the world: their ancestors lived here more than 15 thousand years ago. The Garden Where the Gods Play is the story of Ashiri, a woman who lives in a traditional Ainu dwelling - similar to the Indian teepee - without heat or running water. She has eight adopted children, all of whom were either orphaned or abused. She imparts to them everything she knows about the Ainu tradition and language. Ashiri is a shaman - a good sorceress - who officiates at ceremonies to welcome their gods to the "garden where they play". But, the modern world presses on and is becoming a real threat to the identity of these peaceful people and their simple way of life

Astride the Polish-Bielorussian border, wooden mosques overhang two small Tatar villages.

Endangered civilizations. between magic and prayer( Visual )

1 edition published in 1998 in English and held by 120 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Podlachia lies almost on the border between Bielorussia and Poland. It is a meeting place between Eastern and Western cultures, a unique blend of orthodoxy and Roman catholicism. In this remote area, the isolation of most villages enables pagan beliefs and practices to resist the teachings of the Orthodox Church. In Grabouka, the Holy Mount is the most revered pilgrimage for the Orthodox community. The Transfiguration Festival takes place on August 19th every year. Thousands of pilgrims come and drink the holy water rising from the foot of the hill. Beliefs and customs are preserved and transmitted by the Szeptuchy (the Whisperers), who are considered witches and healers all in one

This unsettling documentary brings us inside, not only Boris' dark, cold, claustrophobic cell but also the hidden recesses of his mind.
