The Wire


Watch excerpts from a film about Polish Radio Experimental Studio cofounder Eugeniusz Rudnik

Agata Pyzik reviews 15 Corners Of The World in The Wire 374: "Zuzanna Solakiewicz’s film starts well: you hear, more than you see, an unidentifiable landscape, with natural land forms that look like abstract sculptures from the 1960s. You recognise the Soviet-era science fiction classic Silent Star, a 1960 East German/Polish coproduction known in the West as First Spaceship On Venus, which was screened in the US shorn of its more anticapitalist elements. The futuristic yet weirdly organic music is an electronic score by Andrzej Markowski, made in Polish Radio Experimental Studio, and realised by its cofounder and longest serving engineer and composer Eugeniusz Rudnik."

15 Corners Of The World will be screened at London's ICA on 10 April as part of the Kinoteka Polish Film festival.
