    "The Blood of a Poet" ("Le Sang d'un poète") directed by Jean Cocteau

MinoTAur Cinema is a unique place created especially for the duration of the Warsaw Under Construction festival.

One of the ateliers at Inżynierska 3 in Praga district has been transformed into an intimate cinema. The labyrinth of backstreets will transfer ardent seekers to the magical world of Bergman's masters, witches and French Surrealism.

The Blood of a Poet (Le Sang d'un poète)
directed by Jean Cocteau, France, 1932, 60 mins.

With its suggestiveness, a film debut of a scandalizing artist and writer transports viewers to the author’s oneiric world, which culminates in a famous scene where the character goes through the mirror. By applying innovative special effects, editing, setting and makeup methods, the author exposes himself to viewers in a certain sense. Straight after the premiere the film was accused of anti-Christian contents; it took a year for viewers to fully accept and appreciate this masterpiece.
