MOONAGE DAYDREAM | MOONAGE DAYDREAM
(Brett Morgen) US/DE 2022, 135’
(In English with Polish subtitles)

David Bowie had a multitude of personas as a musician, painter, actor, and world traveller. This documentary portrait, told in his own words from decades of interviews, is as bold and visually inventive as he was. Coming six years after his death, the film celebrates the immortality of his art, drawing upon an astonishing depth of rare footage including live performances of quintessential songs such as “Moonage Daydream,” “Space Oddity,” “Sound and Vision,” “Heroes,” and more.

 

 

NITRAM | NITRAM
(Justin Kurzel) AU 2022, 112'
(in English with Polish subtitles)

In 1996, Martin Bryant shot 35 people and injured dozens more in the Tasmanian city of Port Arthur, making it the largest mass shooting in Australia's history. Justin Kurzel's film does not recreate the actual massacre although in earlier films, such as Snowtown or the adaptation of Shakespeare's Macbeth, he does not spare viewers on-screen violence, this time he is interested in exploring the killer's persona. However, Nitram is not Bryant's biography, although it draws a lot on his life story, thus avoiding a stereotypical narrative about the mind of a mass murderer. The eponymous main character, superbly played by the Cannes award-winning Caleb Landry Jones, is therefore not a sociopath from a Hollywood thriller, but a man who wants to be seen and for whom violence becomes the only available and obvious solution to his problems. Precisely directed, narrated with emotional perspective, Nitram seems to be a film that, instead of shocking with brutal scenes, raises instinctive anxiety.

 

 

SHE SAID | SHE SAID
(Maria Schrader) US 2022, 135’

New York Times reporters Megan Twohey and Jodi Kantor break one of the most important stories in a generation — a story that helped launch the #MeToo movement and shattered decades of silence around the subject of sexual assault in Hollywood.

 

 

THE FIVE DEVILS | LES CINQ DIABLES
(Léa Mysius) FR 2022, 96’
(In French with Polish and English subtitles)

Vicky is a lonely girl living in a sleepy mountain town. She is gifted with a peculiar talent: she can grasp and reproduce all possible scents, which she collects one by one in carefully labeled jars. A special place among them is occupied by the scent of her mother, Joanne (Adèle Exarchopoulos). Joanne is an aqua fitness instructor, and after work she and Vicky perform their favorite ritual - Joanne swims in the lake under the watchful eye of her daughter. One day, Joanne’s sister-in-law, the mysterious Julia, shows up at their house. Intrigued by this unexpected presence, the girl ‘steals’ her scent and by recreating it, travels into the woman’s past. In doing so, she begins to uncover surprising secrets and resurrects the story that influenced the fate of her family. The latest film by Léa Mysius, director of the acclaimed Ava, makes for electrifying cinema at the crossroads of drama, thriller and parapsychological fantasy. At the same time, it is a non-obvious story about memory, motherhood, unfulfilled desires and a life put on hold. And about the great power of cinematic imagination, which magically intertwines different parallel worlds and space-time continuums.
