From Front and Behind (Poland, 50’)
The performance is historically focusing on Poland in the 18th century, just before it loses its sovereignty, after its third division. In his novel, Karol Zbyszewski satirises politicians from opposing camps, the clergy, the army and all social classes. Zbyszewski ridicules heavy drinking, laziness, recklessness, attachment to empty slogans and gestures, false religiousness, political and domestic conflict, making the whole Polish society responsible for the partitions of Poland.
Text adaptation: Stanisław Miedziewski & Mateusz Nowak
Director: Stanisław Miedziewski

In Polish with Greek and English surtitles
