Filmoteka Muzeum

There and here forms part of Andrzej Pawłowski’s light spectacle Cinéforms. What is unique here are the images of the human body: hands and face. The improvised screenings of Cinéforms sometimes revealed the hands of the artist, hidden behind the screen, turning the knobs of his purpose-built projector. In There and Here, the hands are shown in refined and expressive gestures, while the faces are covered with blood dribbles. This “superfluous attempt to vest the film with a more profound message, implying that it depicts somewhat of a cosmic apocalypse“ (M. Giżycki) does not deprive it of its charm, so characteristic of Cinéforms.
