The Art of Disappearing

The Art of Disappearing

(Sztuka znikania) Director: Bartek Konopka, Piotr Rosołowski, PL, 2013, Creole / English subtitles, 51 min

This film about the Haitian priest Amon, who visited Poland in the 1980s and tried to use voodoo to free the “white slaves”, mixes a documentary approach with poetic and spiritual fiction. A collage based on the effective juxtaposition of civilizations, it oscillates between cultural joke and social essay. Amon’s “Gulliverian” exploration of his new reality is both chilling and humorous. As an outside observer, he responds almost philosophically to the long lines for scarce goods: “They came to be together, and yet each is alone.”

The screening is held in partnership with the Jihlava International Documentary Film Festival.
