Pera Film hosts Polish duo SzaZa for a special concert, held in paralel to the film program Roman Polanski: Wanted and Desired.
From all Roman Polanski’s works, his short films have probably the least exposure. Between 1958-1962, as a student of the National Film School in Łódź, Polanski created a series of short films, from playful technique exercises like “Murder” (1957) and “A Toothful Smile”, through metaphorical “Break Up the Dance” (1957) and “Mammals” (1962) to “Two Men and a Wardrobe” (1958), which brought Polanski international acclaim. These etudes display the glimpses of surreal, often dark style Polanski would explore in his later works, as well as his narrative genius and relentless search for the truth about human nature, regardless of the cruelty and viciousness he may uncover. SzaZa - Szamburski / Zakrocki has created a very dynamic soundtrack conversing with these images, showing how important music and sound can be in a film. By referencing Krzysztof Komeda compositions and the original music that was used in these shorts SzaZa creates a new and unique narrative field.
SzaZa's (Paweł Szamburski / Patryk Zakrocki duo) music is a unique blending of seemingly opposite extremes - of noise and silence, pop and contemporary chamber, beauty and ugliness, of sophisticated wisdom and pure, naive thoughtlessness. Szamburski and Zakrocki create music for theatre, film, silent movies and contemporary dance.They are multi-instrumentalists, improvisers and promoters of culture who have been active on the Warsaw improvised music and independent art scene since 1999.

Organized in collaboration with the Giacometti Foundation, Paris, the exhibition explores Giacometti’s prolific life, most of which the artist led in his studio in Montparnasse, through the works of his early period as well his late work, including one unfinished piece. Devoted to Giacometti’s early works, the first part of the exhibition demonstrates the influence of Giovanni Giacometti, the father of the artist and a Swiss Post-Impressionist painter himself, on Giacometti’s output during these years and his role in his son’s development.
