VWI-Visuals

 

Die VWI Visuals präsentiert in unregelmäßigen Abständen kaum bekannte, vergessene oder kontroversielle filmische Aufarbeitungen, Kommentare und Dokumentationen zum Thema Holocaust. Expertinnen und Experten stellen vor der Vorführung den Film kurz vor, um ihn danach gemeinsam mit anderen Gästen und dem Publikum näher zu diskutieren, in einen Kontext zu stellen. Mit seinem spezifischen Ambiente, seiner cineastischen Patina hat sich bis jetzt das Wiener Admiralkino als idealer Ort für dieses Veranstaltungsformat erwiesen. Mit dem neuen Standort ergibt sich aber auch die Möglichkeit, die Visuals in die Research Lounge des Instituts zu verlagern.

Admiralkino, 1070 Wien, Burggasse 119

 

Franciszek Kalina, who left Poland in the eighties for Chicago, returns to his native village after a long absence. There he discovers that his brother Józef has become an outcast, for reasons that only gradually become clear. Józef has been gathering gravestones from an old Jewish cemetery that, since the Jewish population's extinction in World War II, had been used for other purposes. Józef has lined the gravestones up on his lands, and Francziszek is confronted with the outrage of his brother's neighbours. The visit back home turns into a nightmare.


»Pokłosie« – meaning »aftermath« – attracted large audiences to Polish cinemas while triggering fierce debates in the Polish and broader European media. Critics charged the screenplay with enforcing stereotypes and clichés, while at the same time praising the film's powerful performances.


Szewach Weiss of the University of Haifa will introduce the film and make some remarks on the specific context of the making of the film.

Szewach Weiss, born 1935 in today's Boryslav (Ukraine), politician, author and university teacher; having survived the Holocaust, he emigrated to Israel in 1947 where he studied and graduated from Hebrew University of Jerusalem, he also holds a degree in Law from the Tel Aviv University. In 1975, he became a professor of Political Sciences at the University of Haifa. Parallel to the scholarly career, Weiss was active in politics. He was a member of the Knesset from 1981 to 1999, during that time he held position of Deputy Speaker and then acting Speaker of the 13th Knesset. He was Israel's Ambassador to Poland from 2001 to 2004. Weiss published several books, including: Yoman parlamentari (1988), Those High-Topped Boots (2012), and People and Places (2013).
