2017 marks the 15th anniversary of Unsound. Since its inception as a small DIY event in 2003, the festival has grown to become an international platform of connected events organised around the world, from Toronto, London and New York to cities in the former USSR and Adelaide. Yet it’s the Krakow edition still remains at the heart of Unsound.
The festival kicks off with a movie marathon curated by Jigoku, who have created many offbeat cinema programs for the festival, often sourced from obscure VHS copies. Riffing on Unsound’s Flower Power theme, tonight’s all-nighter includes shorts and features from the U.S., Japan, Italy, Germany and Israel made between the mid-’60s and early ‘70s, exploring drugs, art-filth, pop culture, psychedelia, body painting and much more. Head here for the full program, which takes place at Kino Pod Baranami on the Main Square.
