Two wonderful documentary movies by the Polish Oscar winner Pawel Pawlikowski to watch online.

Pawel Pawlikowski has lived and worked most of his life in the United Kingdom. In 2013 Pawlikowski returned to Poland. His legendary movie Ida garnered him acclaim and made him known to a wide audience. The movie was also screened in Israel a couple of years ago. Pawlikowski won an Oscar for his movie Cold War.  

Before he started making feature movies, Pawlikowski was best known for documentaries. He also worked for BBC. The quality of his documentaries is on par with that of his feature movies. They are all very interesting and original.

We are offering you here two of his works that he created for BBC:

From Moscow to Pietushki is a poetic journey into the world of Russian cult writer Venedikt Erofeev.

Dostoevsky’s Travels was a tragi-comic road movie in which a St Petersburg tram driver—and the only living descendant of Fyodor Dostoevsky —travels rough around Western Europe haunting high-minded humanists, aristocrats, monarchists and a casino in his quest to raise money to buy a secondhand Mercedes.
