SANATORIUM POD KLEPSYDRA

(THE HOURGLASS SANATORIUM)

Directed by : Wojciech J. HAS

Year of production : 1973 Country : POLAND Length : 125 minutes

Synopsis

Józef arrives at Doctor Gotard's sanatorium, where his father Jakub is staying. Although Jakub died years ago, he remains alive here, thanks to a successful experiment that allows him go back in time to see his son again and have an important conversation with him. For Józef, this is the beginning of an extraordinary, dreamlike journey through time, and a return to his childhood haunts – his father’s shop, the Jewish shtetl, and the garden of his childhood sweetheart Bianka. This masterpiece of Polish cinema filters the stories of Bruno Schulz through the prism of the Holocaust. One of the most original, visually extraordinary and internationally famous Polish films, it won prizes at Cannes, Trieste and Gdynia; a feature film with exceptional cinematography by Witold Sobocinski.
