Irish Film Institute -IFI & KINOPOLIS: LOVE


Director: Filip Dzierżawski

91 minutes, Poland, 2012, Subtitled, Colour, D-Cinema

Polish jazz band Miłość formed in 1988, and, over the next 14 years, they built up a large following with their mixture of avant-garde influenced free jazz and a healthy dose of punk. Their eclecticism gave birth to a new form of music, yass, which added elements of techno and folk to the mix. The group split following the suicide of their drummer, but decided to reform nearly a decade later, and it is this which forms the spine of this fine documentary.

Mixing archive footage with that of a group whose enthusiasm is slowly dwindling makes for compelling viewing.    

Showing as part of IFI & Kinopolis: 8th Polish Film Festival (November 5th – 9th).
