Odchod na korze / The Stop on Main Street
Production: Slovakia 2013
A documentary not necessarily about an Oscar-awarded film, but rather about what happened after the fact. The camera follows the people, places, adventures, and feelings accompanying that production: The shop on Main Street from 1965. The Czechoslovakian film made cinema history as the first central-European film to win an Academy Award. One of its stars was Ida Kamińska – Polish, Jewish, and international actress and theatre director. The nostalgically black-and-white documentary The stop on Main Street returns to the atmosphere of The shop on Main Street, also appreciating those who couldn't play in the Oscar-winning film due to important life matters.
