The World from Dusk till Dawn is an original project that sees several workshops for film school students take place in various cities across the globe and just made its last stop in Brussels
Under the artistic supervision of their teachers (prominent Polish documentary filmmakers and film theorists) the students worked together on a number of documentary films in which Brussels was given the starring role. The end result was the production of one-hour documentary films intended to paint a portrait of different urban areas.
The film specialists include: Marcel Łoziński (a previous Łódź film school graduate, documentary filmmaker, screenwriter, Academy Award nominee and current lecturer at Andrzej Wajda's Master School of Film Directing as well as a member of the American Motion Picture Arts and Sciences Academy) Jacek Bławut (a member of the European Film Academy as well as an actor, cinematographer and film director, who lectures in Berlin, Hanover and Warsaw) Vita Żelakeviciute (the director of nine feature films, including 'Schitzophrenia' and 'Beyond the Wall') Mateusz Werner (author of 'Polish Cinema Now!', previous director of the Gallery of Film Arts at the Zacheta National Gallery and contributor to Polish film periodicals 'Film' and 'Kino') Maciej Drygas (a director and screenwriter whose early films explored Poland under PRL; he has collaborated with wife Vita Żelakeviciute on two documentary film projects, including 'One Day in People’s Poland' in 2005) and Mirosław Dembiński, (a director with almost 30 films to his name, for which he's received almost 80 awards-for films including 'My Little Everest' and 'Mountain Hermits').
The main aims of the project were to present films made during the workshops and screen some of the tutors’ documentaries. These presentations were part of the touring series ‘From Warsaw to Brussels around the World’ and they cover the following cities: Warsaw, Minsk, Kiev, Moscow, Beijing, Tokyo and Brussels.
The World From Dusk Till Dawn is a film exercise that originated in Łódź film school. Established in 1948, the school's graduates include acclaimed directors such as Roman Polański, Andrzej Wajda, Krzysztof Zanussi, Jerzy Skolimowski, Robert Gliński, Andrzej Munk, Piotr Sobociński and Krzysztof Kieślowski.
