WHATGiuseppe in Warsaw / Giuseppe w Warszawie, 1964 – a war comedy, 1 hr 39 min., English subtitles.

COST: FREE
CONTACT: joanna.guttlehr AT gmail.com

Director: Stanisław Lenartowicz
Screenwriter: Jacek Wejroch
Cinematography: Antoni Nurzyński
Music: Wojciech Kilar

Cast: Elżbieta Czyżewska, Antonio Cifariello, Zbigniew Cybulski, Jarema Stępowski, and others.

Synopsis:

A farce of the Polish occupation reality. A big dose of humor.
The Italian soldier Giuseppe Santucci, on his way home from the Russian front, during World War II (in 1943), has his machine gun stolen in Warsaw. Afraid of consequences, he stays in Warsaw in a flat of the Polish girl Maria, whom he suspects of stealing the weapon. Maria indeed is an active member of the Polish resistance, contrary to her brother, Staszek, a painter, who only wants a calm living. In a course of funny events, Giuseppe falls in love, and, along with Staszek, becomes a hero of the Polish resistance.
This black and white film is considered the best of the Lenartowicz’s films. The director was praised for his courage to make a light sparkling with humor film that deals with the dark times of the war.

The cast is fantastic: Zbigniew Cybulski (Polish “James Dean” known to American audience mainly from his very serious role in Wajda’s “Ashes and Diamonds”), Elżbieta Czyżewska (called „Cybulski in a skirt”) as well as the Italian actor/journalist who plays the title role of Giuseppe, Antonio Cifariello.
In an interview for “Kino” magazine Stanisław Lenartowicz explained his motivation to make this film:

“I wanted to make a film that portrays the times of occupation differently. There were many films treating the subject very seriously, full of martydrom, but I thought that it is time to show that Poles drew their courage and moral strength from their sense of humor or even from playing pranks on the enemy. In a way, humor helped to protect the society from a complete collapse. Poles refused to be psychologically squashed and used their sense of humor to keep a distance from the horrors and danger around.”

“Courage” is a contemporary story about two brothers who are struggling over the family business. After facing a violent incident on a train, their lives change completely and the situation forces them to reveal who they really are. The story is based on true events. There were numerous cases of people being thrown from trains in many countries around the world. What interested us in this story is touching the fundamental themes of cowardice, associated guilt, and redemption. Each one could encounter a similar situation. But how would we react?

What Koledy Polskie- Polish Carol Singing
Where: St Stanislaus Church, 9175 FM 1371, Chappell Hill, TX 77426
When: Saturday December 30th, 11am
Cost: FREE, donations gladly accepted
Costumes one dish for potluck dinner are encouraged.

Information and details below provided by Jim Mazurkiewicz, president of Polish American Council of Texas

On behalf of the “Kolędy Polskie” organizers, we want to invite you,your family and friends to join “Kolędy Polskie” on Saturday, December 30, 2017 at 11:00 a.m. in Chappell Hill, Texas at St. Stanislaus Catholic Church.This will be our 10th annual “Kolędy Polskie” and we hope that you will invite your loved ones to join in this beautiful Polish tradition. Everyone is encouraged and welcome to attend to help celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ embracing our Polish culture and Christian faith.

This year we will be hosting a delegation from Poland “Majeranki”. This is a musical high school group that will join our Texas Polish musicians as we celebrate “Kolędy Polskie”. There are 15 members in this delegation with 11 fiddle players, 1 Duda player, 1 Bass player and 1 Accordion player. This group is from the Polish Mountains near Zakopane. Also, they will perform a concert at 4:00 p.m. at the Chappell Hill Museum and they will perform for mass at 6:00 p.m. at St. Stanislaus Catholic Church.

The “Kolędy Polskie” will convene at 11:00 a.m. on the steps of St. Stanislaus Catholic Church. In addition, we encourage everyone to bring a Polish covered dish for our evening meal to share for a pot luck supper. You are welcome to take your dish early to Jozwiak’s store if it is something that needs to stay warm. In addition, we would like for you to dress in costume and bring a candle for our cemetery vigil at dusk. Dressing in costume is an old Polish custom dating back to the 14th century and we would like to honor that tradition. However, you do not have to have anything elaborate or fancy. You may dress as a beggar, an angel, a king, a shepherd, a devil, St. Nickolas, a wise man, make a homemade costume and/or wear a traditional Polish Folk Costume. To reduce the number of cars in procession and to foster fellowship, we have rented a school bus that will seat 50 people. Vehicles will be left in the St. Stanislaus parking lot and we will come back for them before we go to the cemetery candle light vigil. All donations for the bus will be given to St. Stanislaus Catholic Church.

Sometime during the 14th century, the tradition of ”Kolędy Polskie” began on St. Stephen’s Day and continued thru Epiphany, January 6 (the 12th day of Christmas) until Candle Mass, February 2. We encourage you to go visit your friends and relatives to bring cheer and joy to those in need, especially our elderly in nursing homes and those living alone. Please join us in celebrating the true meaning of Christmas by sharing your time with friends and family honoring the birth of Jesus Christ with one of our most beautiful Polish customs ”Kolędy Polskie”.

Once again, we look forward to celebrating “Kolędy Polskie” with each of you and passing down our Polish traditions to another generation of Polish decedents and friends. Each year, it continues to grow in attendance and participation. Your presence would help make this year’s “Kolędy Polskie” memorable and fun. Please feel free to invite your family and friends to join in the celebration, especially the children. We want to share this tradition with our youth so that this beautiful activity is passed down to another generation. We have admirers from Poland, New York, New Jersey, Wisconsin, Michigan and Illinois that are envious of the Polish heart and soul in Texas! Please join us and help make this the best “Kolędy Polskie” to date!

Attached is the schedule of our host families (with times and addresses) we will visit on December 30. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me personally. Remember, this tradition is open to everyone! Please forward this email to your friends and family!

Wesołych Świąt i Szczęśliwego Nowego Roku!

Director: Agnieszka Holland
Screenplay: Agnieszka Holland, based on Solomon Perel’s book
Cinematography: Jacek Petrycki
Music: Zbigniew Preisner

Cast: Marco Hofschneider, André Wilms, Ashley Wanninger, Klaus Abramowsky, Michele Gleizer, Delphine Forest, Rene Hofschneider, Julie Delpy, Salomon Perel (as himself), and others.

Trailer (in English)

Synopsis:

Often, life writes stories, that no writer or filmmaker could make up. And such is a biography of Solomon Perel on which Agnieszka Holland based the screenplay of her film, “Europa, Europa”. Solomon was coming of age in Germany in a Jewish family during the rise of Hitler. In 1935, he was 10 years old, when the family moved to Łódź, Poland after their shoe store was deliberately pillaged and Perel was expelled from school.

After the Germans invaded Poland in September, 1939, Solomon Perel and his brother Isaak attempted to escape to the Soviet-occupied part of Poland. Solomon succeeded and was placed in a Komsomol-run orphanage in Grodno under the Stalinist regime. He fled from the orphanage when Germany invaded the Soviet Union and was captured by a German army unit. His fluent German allowed him to join the Nazis as a translator, posing as Josef Peters, an ethnic German. In time, “Peters” was made a member of the elite Hitler Youth, but since Solomon was circumcised, he could be easily revealed as a Jew, so he lived in constant fear that his secret would be discovered. Solomon’s close calls included an attempted seduction by Robert Kellerman, a homosexual officer, and his relationship with Leni, a beautiful but violently anti-Semitic woman who wanted to bear his child for the glory of the master race. Europa, Europa also features the real Solomon Perel, who appears briefly as himself.

The film was shot largely in Poland at a time when Communist rule was coming to an end and it saw Holland return to her native country for the first time in eight years. The director had been a prominent figure in the “cinema of moral unrest” along with Krzysztof Kieslowski.

Also a review in the New York Times.

Cast: Piotr Adamczyk, Jan Frycz, Wojciech Pszoniak, Kinga Preis, Lesław Żurek, Krzysztof Globisz and Jacek Braciak

Trailer (subtitles)

Synopsis:
Wendorff’s film “Odd One Out,” is a kaleidoscopic narrative revolving around a man who lands his first job as a delivery driver and inadvertently becomes a witness to a traffic accident. When he gives his statement at the police station, he finds himself suddenly entangled in a surreal web of intrigue. The movie has a quality of paradox and absurdity characteristic of the great tradition of literature from countries where oppressive bureaucracies assume the visage of labyrinthine nightmares.

Blessing of food derives from old traditions and religious character of Polish people. We do believe the food we enjoy is a great gift from God and it needs to be blessed as our appreciation for all His grace. Preparation of Easter food and items placed in the Blessed Basket is done at home with all family involved, traditionally mother takes care of the baked goods, father helps with meat preparation and children make Pisanki eggs. Most of the food is prepared on Holy Saturday morning and then a sample of each food item is placed in the wicker basket lined with white linen or lace. The basket is then decorated with spring greens and flowers and the food is covered with a special Easter Basket Doily that displays Easter symbols.

Blessing of food takes place in church on Holy Saturday, the baskets are set up around the altar, the food is uncovered and priest blesses it with Holy Water while making prayers. Three groups of food are being mentioned – eggs and dairy, breads and pastries, meat and roasts. Items in the basket have symbolic meaning: eggs – symbolize life and Christ’s “Resurrection”, bread – symbolic of “Jesus”, lamb – represents Christ, salt – represents purification, horseradish – symbolic of the bitter sacrifice of Christ, ham – symbolic of great joy and abundance.List of items to place in Swięconka Basket:

– Pisanki eggs – Butter Lamb – Ham – Kielbasa or Sausage – Bread – Pastries or cakes – Horseradish – Salt – Easter Palm

Prayer for the Blessing of the Breads and Holiday Baked Goods:
The blessing addresses the Bread of Life who died and rose for the life of the world, invoking Him to bless the bread and holiday baked goods in memory of the Bread which is offered at the Priest’s hands which becomes His Body.

Prayer for the Blessing of the Meats and Sausages

The blessing addresses the Lamb of God, who takes away the sins of the world. The Lamb is invoked and asked to bless the meats and sausages, which will become the holiday meal in memory of the Paschal Lamb, as He gave to the Apostles at the Last Supper.

Prayer for the Blessing of the Eggs and Pisanki

The blessing addresses Christ, our Life and Resurrection. It asks Him to bless the eggs, the sign of new life; asks Him to remember our family, those near as well as guests, especially those who wait in the hope of being with Him.We wait to accompany Him to His Father’s house, where he lives and reigns for ever and ever.

The priest then sprinkles the individual baskets with Holy Water. More traditional Polish churches uses a straw brush for dispersing the Water; others use the more modern metal Holy Water sprinkling wand. In some parishes, the baskets are lined up on long tables; in others, parishioners process to the front of the alter carrying their baskets, as if in a Communion line.
