February 12th, 2015 – February 15th, 2015


At an outdoor market in Berlin, theatre artist Janek Turkowski finds a set of private 8 mm films and a projector. For the low cost of 20 Euros, he takes the bargain home to Poland and begins to pour through the material. The films show a woman in East Germany, from the fifties and later, the sixties; the same woman on a bus ride, at work, in the woods, parades, scenery, parties – the sorts of things people film. Turkowski systematizes, digitizes, and looks for connections, and slowly he finds his way to the owner of the material. (
