“Has’s superbly crafted, visionary films indelibly capture the subjective experience of time… singularly beautiful.”
—The Wall Street Journal
The cinematic dreamscapes of Polish auteur Wojciech Has (1925-2000) are extraordinary odysseys through history, memory, and fantasy. In the metaphysical worlds Has conjures, time is a subjective experience, which warps and bends to the rhythms of the subconscious. That such personal, visionary films were made under the restrictions of Communism makes them all the more remarkable. This comprehensive retrospective, the first in New York City in almost twenty years, features new restorations and archival 35mm prints, and offers an all-too-rare opportunity to experience these staggeringly beautiful and profound works.
