11-02-2018 12:00:00 11-02-2018 12:00:00 America/New_York The Sun, the Sun Blinded Me | 8:30 PM (S?O?CE, TO S?O?CE MNIE O?LEPI?O) U.S. PREMIERE! With Rafa? Mackowiak, Piotr Grabowski, and Joanna Drozda. This film was inspired by THE STRANGER by Albert Camus, which focuses on an alienated man who meets a dark skinned stranger on the beach and kills him. Though written in 1942, Camus's story is relevant today, given the waves of refugees and migrants from Africa and the Middle East that are arriving at the borders of Europe. The hostility with which the Polish government and the majority of Polish society has greeted these migrants is almost incomprehensible given the experiences of WWII and its aftermath, when millions of Poles were themselves displaced. The film is stunningly shot in tones reminiscent of Wilhelm Sasnal's paintings, and its minimalistic images underscore the tragic banality of hate. http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=279655 Anthology Film Archives Anthology Film Archives
