Vampires, movies, and monsters on the eve of Purim  

A festive Purim event in which great films from Poland, horror tales, fantastic Polish animation and a few vampires all come together

A very special Purim evening will be held on March 17 and will include unusual film masterpieces, horror, animation, and pure joy.  

Thursday March 17 2022 from 17:00 pm onwards at Canada Theater 15 Hatserim St.  

17:00 – Gathering  

17:30 p.m. – A screening of War of the Worlds: Next Century (1981) A cult horror film directed by Piotr Szulkin.

An adaptation of the 1897 classic science fiction book War of the Worlds by H. G Wells, the plot of this film takes place in a scary dystopian future where there is a large gap

between the news aired on television and what actually is going on.  

The movie depicts a morbid society in which truth is hidden. While in the original work the Martians were defeated, here they are taking over mankind and consume its blood.  

The aliens prosper thanks to propaganda convincing people to give blood and the media lies about where all this blood goes to.

In Communist Poland the movie was censored and it was shown to the public only in 1983. This movie is a visual and cinematic joy for movie lovers who enjoy films with an edge

that carry a bite in an age of post truth and alternative facts. A must see.  

19:30 – A screening of Kill it and Leave this Town (2019) an award winning animation film by Mariusz Wilcznski shown in Israel for the first time.  

Described by the New York Times as one of the most meaningful directors in the world today, this film as a dark journey to industrial Lodz starring the giants of Polish cinema,

the devil, and a black cat.  

Made entirely by hand over a 14 year-long period, this movie is a lament to Lodz and a pessimistic view on human life following the death of his parents.  

The movie includes well known characters from world literature such as the evil black cat from The Master and Margarita by Bulgakov and great voice talents from the Polish radio and stage.  

These include director Andrzej Wajda, actress Irena Kwiatkowska, and musician Tadeusz Nalepa. The film won many important awards worldwide.  

Both films will be screened with English subtitles and, in addition, copes of With Sake and Spade by Lukasz Kozak will be offered to winners among the audience.
