1 April-22 May 2005. The fall of the Iron Curtain opened a whole new horizon for European film-lovers, and provided Neil Cummings and Marysia Lewandowska with over 300 amateur films from 1960s-80s Poland. During these years cinema was managed and monitored by central government, with leisure pursuits organised around factory clubs. By far the most popular of these clubs were those that focused on filmmaking. The chosen films include brief satirical animations, experimental films, bold documentaries, and epic romances. To complete the experience, the ground-floor of the Whitechapel Gallery has been reconstructed to resemble a Communist factory club. Admission: free.
