Stefan and Franciszka Themerson - The Films of Stefan and Franciszka Themerson
The Themersons had a significant influence on the art and philosophy of the avant-garde of Eastern Europe during the 1930s. Their work reflected something of the Dada and Constructivist forms and ideas of the time, but what most distinguished them throughout their lives, was their remarkable invention and technical experiment. This was true of every field they became involved in: photography, literature, art, design and publishing, as well as film. They were the most important makers of avant-garde film in pre-war Poland. The DVD contains the three surviving Themerson films (all others were lost in Nazi-occupied Poland) subtitled in English and Polish and is accompanied by a 86 page book of unpublished notes and correspondence by Stefan Themerson.
