Stefan (b. 1910) and Franciszka (b. 1907) Themerson met in Warsaw in the late 1920s. Franciszka had graduated in painting at Warsaw Fine Art Academy and Stefan had studied physics and architecture. They married in 1931, and apart from a break in 1940-42, the remainder of their lives involved a succession of remarkable collaborations. Around 1930 they started to collaborate in experiments in photography and film, and became pioneer members of the Polish cinematic avant-garde. Their early works, many of which are now lost, combined an innovative use of photograms, photography and photo-collage techniques. Among their many artistic achievements, the films of Stefan and Franciszka Themerson stand out as significant contributions in the history and development of European experimental cinema. During the festival we are going to show You four of Themerson's movies: “The adventures of a good citizen” (1937), “Calling Mr Smith” (1943), “The Eye&The Ear” (1945), “Stephan + Franciszka” (1975), and a documentary of Erik van Zuylena “Stefan Themerson and language”' (1976). 25th November (Saturday), 08.00 pm.
