JAROCIN. ROCK FOR FREEDOM 2016
Genre: Music Documentary
Director: Marek Gajczak, Leszek Gnoiński
Screenplay: Marek Gajczak, Leszek Gnoiński
In a small town, which no one in Poland heard of, a unique rock festival is born. This takes place in times of strong socialism in the 1980s. Tens of thousands of people arrive at Jarocin which becomes an island of freedom and rebellion.
The most important music event of the 1980s in Poland. A unique place, identified with freedom, escape from everyday life, from dullness and hopelessness. The place of rebelling and fighting for young people’s identity. One of the most important culture-creating places on the map of Poland. Perceived as the nest of evil and debauchery by the older generation. However, from a time perspective it can be seen as the only “normal” place in the Polish sea of abnormality and socialist greyness.
The festival was changing people, opening them for new experiences, music, culture and art. It became a living legend of the Polish rock scene, a cult festival. It existed in the communist time in Poland – since the 1970s to the early 1990s. The street riots in the 1990s caused it to be temporarily cancelled. When it returned in 2005, already in the new Poland, it became one of many festivals, only exploiting its former popularity.

FUGAZI - CENTER OF THE UNIVERSE 2017
Director: Leszek Gnoiński
Screenplay: Waldemar Czapski
“Fugazi – the center of the universe” is a documentary-animated film depicting the short but turbulent history of one of the first private, independent music clubs in free Poland, recognized at that time as the largest such place in Central and Eastern Europe. The film combines in a synthetic way archival recordings of concerts, conversations with artists and perfectly matched animations of Marcin Podolec, which were created on the basis of the comic book “Fugazi Music Club” translated and published in seven countries around the world. This is a 40-minute trip to crazy times in the early 90s of the last century, which are for many people the best time in their life.
World Premiere: 14. Millennium Docs Against Gravity Film Festival
