 Warsaw electronic jazz group Baaba will perform live to an exquisite selection of Polish classic animated films. The program includes Academy Award-winner Zbigniew Rybczynski's New Book, auteur Walerian Borowczyk's Banner of Youth, Miroslaw Kijowicz's Cages (Grand Prix at Annency, 1967), as well as the visually innovative Stairs by Stanislaw Schabenbeck and Chair by Daniel Szczechura.
