Crulic. The Path to the Beyond / Crulic. Droga na drugą stronę / Crulic, drumul spre dincolo (2011)
Friday, October 26, 2012 @ 9 PM
Revue Cinema, 400 Roncesvalles Ave., Toronto
Anca Damian’s feature film is a Romanian-Polish production that tells the true story of Claudiu Crulica, a Romanian citizen who was arrested in Poland on unclear grounds for the theft of a wallet. Held in a Cracow prison, and after unsuccessfully protesting his innocence through official channels, Crulic went on a four-month long hunger strike that eventually cost him his life. Damian’s documentary tells his story exclusively through animation, which proves an effective means of signalling the real-life absence of its main subject. Winner of a number of film
awards, including the IFFS Don Quixote Award (2011) and the Special Jury Prize at the 2011 Warsaw Film Festival.
