Director(s): Marcel Łoziński
Fest Year: 2015
In Person: cinematographer Jacek Petrycki
In 1976, young Polish families are flocking to an idyllic, governmentsponsored summer camp. The purpose of the camp is to instill communist values in the families. Over nine days, the newlyweds partake in a series of drills involving singing, marching, and role-playing. After several days of inane exercises, camp leaders introduce a contest that brings out the worst in everyone. How to Live is the amusing, cunning feature debut of Marcel ��ozi��ski, Polish documentary’s arch provocateur, who slyly embedded four of his friends in the camp. After it was finished, the film was banned. Plays with “Front Collision” (Marcel ��ozi��ski, 1975, 11 min.) On the verge of retirement, an exemplary train conductor makes an unfortunate mistake that costs him his reputation and his retirement ceremony.
