Filmoteka Muzeum

A documentary about the band Izrael, made by a Dutch filmmaker and scriptwriter lost in Poland of the martial law era and fascinated by the Polish punk underground. The film is a grotesque fun play, a conscious tongue-in-cheek overidentification with roles, confronting an ignorant filmmaker from the “affluent West” with the members of a punk-reggae band from communist Poland.
