A figure of underground cinema, Lech Kowalski, specialist in marginality in all its forms (drugs, lives of the homeless, destroy bands) completes with his new film a trilogy dedicated to countries from the East. Beginning in 2000 with The Boot Factory about a shoe factory in Krakow run by punks, followed in 2002 with the road movie On Hitlers Highway, the series concludes with East of Paradise, a stunning work paralleling the life of the filmmakers mother during the World War II and his own in the New York underground scene. Kowalski establishes an unexpected link between those at the bottom of todays society and the displaced of the Fourties all surviving heroes and victims of totalitarian powers, whether Soviet or ultra-capitalist.
(Fabien Lemercier)
