The Sun, the Sun Blinded Me (Słońce, to słońce mnie oślepiło)

Part of the Focus on Poland Strand


Anka and Wilhelm Sasnal are a filmmaking couple responsible for some of the most extraordinary films of contemporary Polish cinema. Their latest film reworks Camus’ L’Étranger into a modern Polish context in which the colonial mindset becomes that of the neo-nationalist. Rafał has barely seen his late mother put into the ground when he is being confronted with the fallout from a reck-less and impulsive act of violence against an immigrant. Resisting the easy psychology of a narrative voiceover, the Sasnals have created a brutally austere and arresting poetic work.
