Introduction Joanna Sarbiewska (University of Gdańsk)
Free entrance

Piotr Szulkin’s film ’Oczy uroczne’ ("Spellbinding Eyes") from 1976 is a story based on a dismal folk tale about a Lord whose gaze causes death. The Lord, closed in his castle leads his dreary life alone until, one day, a nobleman and his daughter lose their way and seek for help on his premises. This oneiric cinema, spells the story with no words, using only images and choral chants. The film is crowded with corpses of dead people from the area of history and culture, which adds an erudite zest making the Szulkin’s film a specific essay. The narrative function is taken over by music which will be played by the MAMROCZ group in this particular re-interpretation.

Mamrocz is a collective established for the interpretations of Szulkin’s film, spicing the director’s filmed images with an improvised form – an exchange between Natalia Grzebała (piano, voice) and Robert Kamiński (synthesisers) – who are musicians linked to the formations Le Bâtard de la Raison / The Bastard of the Mind and Kciuk & The Fingers (The Thumb & The Fingers) in their daily practice..
