The Sun Rises Once A Day

Fortnight 1973, Feature film, 93'


Kluba represents a lyrical attitude to history when telling about life being born again in the Silesian Beskid Mountains after the wartime calamity. This poetic-surrealistic-ballad-brigand folk agit-prop with all its accessories (evil spirit – saboteur, village dunder-head, choir, emissary of good cause – strong leader) is in fact a treatise on social engineering, focusing on the problem: the authorities versus the society (…). This diversity of meanings, present throughout the picture, is fascinating and infuses ‘The Sun…’ with an aesthetic effect.
