Experimenta: The Surviving Films of Franciszka and Stefan Themerson + Intro by Jasia Reichardt at BFI Southbank (27 JAN 18:10).

“In this special Experimenta event we present four surviving film works by groundbreaking Polish avant-gardists the Themersons. Their legendary anti-fascist film EUROPA (1931), looted by the Nazis, was recently discovered in the Bundesarchiv, Berlin and screened publicly for the first time in nearly 90 years in the 2021 London Film Festival. To further understand the development of the Themersons’ work and ideas, we present ADVENTURES OF A GOOD CITIZEN (1937), CALLING MR. SMITH (1943) and THE EYE AND EAR (1944).” (BFI)
