The last film meeting in the series Between history and cinema, dealing with the subject of war and the Holocaust in Polish cinematography - the period of war and the Holocaust and its complexity through the prism of films by outstanding Polish directors  

The last film meeting in the series Between history and cinema, dealing with the subject of war and the Holocaust in Polish

cinematography – series that shows the period of war and the Holocaust and its complexity through the prism of films by outstanding

Polish directors: This time we will watch the film “Canal” (1957) by the well-known Polish director Andrzej Wajda.

The meeting will take place on Tuesday, December 27, 2022 at 17:00 at the University of Haifa.

 The film is the second (and considered the most accessible) of Wajda’s “War Trilogy” and describes the fate of a group of members of

the Polish underground during the Warsaw Uprising in 1944.

It shows one of the final episodes of the Warsaw Uprising and the evacuation of the insurgents through underground sewers.

The film was based on the story Canal (1956) and according to the script written by Jerzy Stefan Stawiński, who himself was a participant

in the Warsaw Uprising and survived the evacuation through the sewers.

Wajda presents his heroes and the events of the war in a unique way, perfectly operating with cinematic means, shifting the lens from

the heroic to the human dimension.

In 1957, the film received the Special Jury Prize at the Cannes Film Festival.

95 minutes. Film in Polish with Hebrew and English subtitles.

The film will be preceded by a lecture by Dr. Dorota Burda Fischer from Haifa Interdisciplinary Unit for Polish Studies.

University of Haifa, Library Auditorium (Room 146).

Participation is free.
