Film series: Przewodnik [The Guide Man], (dir. by Tomasz Zygadło)
Free entrance
A documentary feature by Tomasz Zygadło offers a marvellous cinematic portrayal of Piotr Skrzynecki – a creator and driving force behind the Piwnica pod Baranami literary cabaret. The title itself is somewhat ambiguous. Piotr Skrzynecki does not only show us around the Piwnica pod Baranami seat and shares the story of the cabaret with us, but he invites the viewers to take part in an intimate journey round Krakow and his own life – he unveils his childhood memories and elaborates on his philosophy of life. However, the title may also refer to a situation in which Piotr Skrzynecki found himself during the martial law. An artist, once enjoying an unhindered and unrestrained lifestyle, was forced to gat a regular job – the job which entailed showing people round the tourist attractions of Krakow. The phenomenon of the Piwnica pod Baranami cabaret is also presented by means of music: such favourites as Nasza młodość [Our youth] (music by Zygmunt Konieczny, lyrics by Tadeusz Śliwiak), Zabij ten lęk [Kill the fear] (music by Jan Kanty Pawluśkiewicz and Marek Grechuta, lyrics by Stanisław Ignacy Witkiewicz) and Kochanek [A lover] (music by Zygmunt Konieczny, lyrics by Kazimierz Przerwa-Tetmajer), among others.
