Love – Liebe
FAMA Club, 5 Legionowa St.
What would cinema be like without love, lustful gazes, erotic tension, kisses and romantic walks? Without parting full of longing and crazy turmoil… “Casablanca”, “Lovers of Pont-Neuf”, “Endless”… Cinema of love is the most democratic expression of our life: romantic / egalitarian / amoral theme of our meeting with the film and ourselves, and a short film is its essence – the image of desires, feelings and longings that are the basis of our existence and the joy, fulfillment, sadness of desires, the hope of a physical closeness, a moment of hesitation, disappointment or the question of what love is, accompanying us from the cradle.
A meeting with a short film about love is for us a moment of reflection on what is the most important experience in our life – a moment of reflection or a challenge, a hormonal turmoil… Love has countless faces in the crowd of our fascinations and desires, and our cultural circumstances. A short program about short love is a peep show into the nooks and crannies of our desires and visions about what meeting with another person is. The fact that this tete-a-tete surprises us and it is not what we imagine, what we were told at home about love, proves that what we imagine about this great feeling is often a cul de sac of our romantic desires. Let us give love a chance without the sacrament of eternal fulfillment in the everyday recognition of another person and in the joy of cinematographic fulfillment.
