Feinweinblein

Mateusz Bednarkiewicz
Poland 2016 / 44’
Carried Away Gardenia

Feinweinblein has the construction of a modern poem. The action takes place just after World War II in a small town in Upper Silesia. The town's inhabitants are suspended and torn between the trauma of war and an uncertain future, between Poland and Germany. They exist in a state of apathy, victims of Soviet propaganda, as they had been affected by Nazi propaganda earlier. The tool of this propaganda is radio, which they listen to because it provides them with a semblance of normalcy and a feeling of being in touch with the world that exists somewhere far away but not around them. And it is with the radio that the shocking war-time story of the Knauer family is connected: the handing over of their handicapped child in return for a radio set.
