Filmoteka Muzeum

Film shot at the Lutheran cemetery in Pabianice. Libera films fragments of gravestones where the dates of birth and death are marked by the symbols of the star and the cross. As the artist puts it: “I used here certain formal experiments of the Workshop of Film Form as a wrapping for rather traditional content from quite a different area.”
