Meeting: Travel (in) photos
Following the screening of "Ski", dir. Manque La Banca, "Miczika is Not Afraid of Airplanes", dir. Anna Baumgart, and "Journey Diary", dir. Anna Baumgart
Partner: Museum of Modern Art in Warsaw
Anna Baumgart’s latest film projects interrogate the idea of a journey, sometimes an impossible one. Her "Miczika is Not Afraid of Airplanes" examines the extent to which the early 20th century story of Evenk guide Miczika and Polish anthropologist Maria Antonina Czaplicka is a universal tale about power relationships in describing the world. "Journey Diary" was inspired by Mieczysława Nogajewska, the prewar proprietress of "Foto-Elite", Gdynia's most famous photography studio. This film makes use of female travelers’ observations, selected and adapted by Prof. Małgorzata Radkiewicz, PhD, who will interview Anna Baumgart about the capturing of travel-related experiences in still photos and on film. The event will also feature a photo presentation.
