First Love

Poland / 1974 / 52 min
In Polish with Chi & Eng Sub

A young newlywed couple with a baby on the way must grow up fast and brace themselves for the challenges of adulthood. Under the rule of an autocratic government, getting a marriage license and apartment hunts are excruciating.


Hospital

Poland / 1977 / 20 min
In Polish with Chi & Eng Sub

Synopsis
A peek into a 24-hour period at a hospital operating theater reveals severe shortages, faulty phone connections and unstable power supply -- problems that have become part of everyday life in the communist Poland at the time.


Talking Heads

Poland / 1980 / 16 min
In Polish with Chi & Eng Sub

Synopsis
The film is essentially a series of interviews where subjects of different ages, occupations and social status are asked only two questions: Who are you? What do you expect out of life? Under the rule of the communist government, their answers provide a fascinating glimpse into the people of Poland and their views on life.
