Historia kina w Popielawach (Jan Jakub Kolski, 1998)
“Historia kina w Popielawach” is a bucolic familiar tale, full of irony and heavily intertwined with the invention of the motion picture. The narrator is a boy of ten years, during the sixties, traveling from town to visit the village of his grandfather, Popielawy. About a hundred years ago – nearly a quarter of a century before Edison and the Lumiere brothers – the village blacksmith invented a cinematic apparatus with which he was able to project images drawn in the bladders of fish and pigs, making them “come alive”. One hundred years later, the great grandson of a blacksmith Szustek is determined to rebuild the machine from its ancestor, despite the opposition of his father.
