Gesher Galicia SIG #Galicia The Films of Tomek Wisniewski #galicia
Steven Lasky <steve725@...>
You can now see nearly seventy very interesting short films
created by Tomek Wisniewski, a native of Bialystok, Poland.
Tomek's films mostly concern various towns and cities within
Poland, i.e. the Poland of today and of pre-World War II Poland,
but there are others about towns in today's Belarus, Ukraine,
Latvia and Lithuania. Most of his films are accompanied by
respectful music, mostly instrumental, and each film lasts
anywhere >from less than two minutes to slightly more than ten.
Many of the films are composed of slow, panning scans of
pre-war black and white photographs; others contain actual
film footage taken before and during World War II.
For Galicia researchers, you can find films about such towns as
Chortkiv, Ukraine, Lubycza Krolewska, Poland and Zolochiv,
Ukraine. The films are listed alphabetically by the name of the
town that the film is associated with, so just scroll down the
page until you find a film of interest and click on the individual
More of Tomek's films will be added in the future as he creates
them. You can find the links to all of his films that are being
shown at the Museum at
