Hosted by Stryx, PEA presents a specially-curated film programme from Enthusiast: Archive, a repository of films collected by artists Neil Cummings and Marysia Lewandowska. The films are the remnants of amateur film clubs in Poland under socialism, and have been extensively researched, restored and made available online.
The archive enables visitors to explore the generosity of the enthusiast, a generosity that reveals a range of interests and experiences generally invisible amongst the breathless flow of the State-sponsored, or professionally-mediated contemporary cinema of Poland. The archive is intended to stimulate interest and discussion into the nature of contemporary creative exchange, the function of public archives, and the future of the public domain.
