THE SARAGOSSA MANUSCRIPT
This Sunday is dedicated to one of Poland's greats, Wojciech Jerzy Has. A visionary filmmaker who was more interested in creating a surrealist visual experience as opposed to just making films. His work was an amalgamation of poetic landscapes married with the labyrinth of; or should I say the lack of any cohesive time structure. Too try and explain what THE SARAGOSSA MANUSCRIPT would be an almost impossible task, the film is based on text discovered during the Napoleonic war by a pair of opposing soldiers. Has uses Captain Alphonse van Worden as a metaphorical arrow too guide you through this complex story both humorous and horrifying, this film has influenced artist from Jerry Garcia (THE GRATEFUL DEAD), Francis Ford Coppola, Peter Greenaway, Martin Scorsese and Dave LaChapelle too name but a few. The ultimate filmic journey with free vegan food and rum to help you on your journey through the creative labyrinth of Jerzy Has.
