The Hamilton College F.I.L.M. (Forum on Image and Language in Motion) series continues with filmmaker Pawel Wojtasik presenting Dark Sun Squeeze (2003), Naked (2005), Nascentes Morimur (2009), Pigs (2010), The Aquarium (2006) and At the Still Point (2010) on Sunday, Nov. 6, at 2 p.m., in the Bradford Auditorium, KJ. The event, organized by Professor Scott MacDonald, is free and open to the public.
Regarding his films, Wojtasik explains that “I’m sometimes asked why I choose the subjects I do. I use art, and film, as a tool to discover ways in which I can go from fear to freedom-from-fear. Each one of my pieces is like a small journey from a state of fear through an experience of accessing and encountering some terrifying reality which speaks ultimately of death, and becoming intimate with it, until I see that there is something beyond death. Having a kind of intimacy with death allows you to be free of it.”
