WELCOME TO SLOT!

When you walked through the festival gate you entered a special place. SLOT is a few days away from the daily routine. Even though the clock face still has 12 hours on it, time here is thicker. It can also be surprisingly deep, so beware. Since we’ve mentioned a daily routine- we don’t want to avoid it permanently. If you find that your routine is more beautiful when you get back to it, then we’ll feel that this 19th festival is a success. Whatever may come, the new festival slogan remains...

Green SLOT

New this year! The beginning of a dialog about combining our strengths in the fight for the good around us that was given by the Creator. Take up the challenge- look at your life and ask yourself, “What else could I change to be more friendly to my surroundings, the environment, people, animals….” (more info on page 67). A guarantee of a good time for the youngest SLOT participants! This year we’ll have two groups: -Younger kids (ages 3-5) will meet in the Lubiąż pre-school and playground. Childcare will be from 10.00-18.00 daily. There will be games in a wellequipped room, drawing, painting and bubbles. - Older kids (ages 6-10) will meet at the Lubiąż culture house upstairs.

We will explain terminology and architectural issues connected to interior design. We will consider the characteristics of a drawing – its clarity and presentation.

interior architecture, designs graphics, interiors, products and visuals Designing is not difficult, it can almost be a game. Few are aware that a beautifully drawn car or dress on a manikin was not drawn from memory. The designer usually has a base, or shape of a typical car, or the shape of a human on paper and then sketches their idea. This makes it fairly simple. I will show people who have never held a pencil in their hand how easy it is to pour their imagination onto paper. We will design on a base and draw our own product – a car, dress, shoe or toy. I invite you because everyone, regardless of age, can be a little designer.

You can only transform them into an element of your work.

Artur Pilarczyk – studied Polish, culture animator, director, screenplay writer, organizes film and screenplay workshops This is a lecture about the specific issues and steps in writing film screenplays. The theoretical part will include showing the film “Teraz i zawsze” (“Now and always”).

Kim Nowak (PL)

Kim Novak was formed in 2009 by Michał Sobolewski, Piotr and Bartek Waglewski (known as Fisz and Emade). Their album “Kim Novak” was recorded live in 2009 and includes 12 “messed up” songs, “that are so hot they break hearts and blow the power out in the whole city”. The name is a throw-back to the 60’s and the desire to record without all the production fireworks. Guitar riffs that hearken back to classics combine with punk, garage rhythm and Fisz’s strong and quality texts. www.myspace.com/kimnowak

Izrael (PL)

Israel is a legend in Poland reggae that began in 1983 with Roberta Brylewski (Armia, Brygada Kryzys, 52UM) and Paweł „Kelner” Rozwadowski (Deuter). Later Dariusz „Maleo” Malejonek (Maleo Reggae Rockers, Houk, Moskwa, 2Tm2-3) joined along with multi-instrumentalist Włodzimierz „Kinior” Kiniorski. Their incredible concert energy and years of experience have made them one of the best Polish bands.

NLM is not just music and theater- it’s a passion that goes beyond any esthetic borders or any other kind of border to share their message. www.myspace.com/nolongermusic

Luxtorpeda (PL)

On the one hand Luxtorpeda is a solo project of one of the best guitarists and most deserving stars of the Polish rock scene- Litza (Acid Drinkers, 2 Tm 2:3, Kazik Na Zywo, Flapjack) and on the other it’s a new band of four friends who have played together for years in various bands: Litza, Kmieta, Drężmak, Krzyżak. It’s a solo project in that it’s the creation of Litza and his neverending drive to play great guitar. He’s the vocalist, writes the texts and steers the whole project.

Main stage

Dva (CZ)

Circus, beatbox, cabaret, tango, avantpop, acoustic electro and electro-acoustic. A sibling duo that mixes vocals with acoustic instruments in a looped reality. It’s folk music of an imaginary land that doesn’t exist in the world of old people. www.myspace.com/hudba2

Japoto

The memebers of Japoto are experienced musicians who normally move in different musical streams: Damian Pielka - guitar, voice (Lech Janerka, Pogodno), Krzysztof Brejdygant - Zalewski - vocals, keyboards (solo, Hey - concerts) Michał Mioduszewski - percusssion, vocals, grey smoke (No!No!No!, Lech Janerka) Tomasz Leś - guitar, voice (100-nka, Abradab). In general you could say that Japoto plays alternative music since even though it’s an all-guitar band they find a sound that fits dance, jazz and rock. www.myspace.com/japoto

The Poise Rite

They say that they play rock and roll- concrete numbers dunked in a dark psychedelic aura, written with much feeling and impressions yet losing nothing in the reflective texts. The basic and suggestive guitar compositions are truly promising. It’s worth mentioning that they took part in the famous English Glastonbury Festival in 2007. www.myspace.com/poiserite

Frenchman

Half Polish, half French, born in Africa where he spent 14 years. Known for work with Bass Medium Trinity and Jamal, just finished his first solo album with guests such as O.S.T.R. AbradAb, Marika, HiFi Banda and Gural. All music and lyrics are his and flow from long reflection and deep conversion. They contain a conscious spiritual message about daily life and the nuances of the Polish music scene and show business in general. www.myspace.com/Mr.FRENCHMAN fot. PoiseRite


Main stage Bipolar Bears

An avant-garde mix somewhere between rock energy and electronic sounds. Their debut album “Interpolar Link” was composed and produced by Kubę Mitoraja and Szymona Danisa (m.in. CO.IN. and Fate Unknown). Besides them is Maciek Zakrzewski (Digit -All-Love) responsible for samplers, synthesizers and electronics and bassist Grzegorz Posłuszny. Their latest album speaks about breaking barriers and cultural pride. www.myspace.com/ bipolarbearspoland

Stage of Unity

The band formed in 1988 in Wrocław. Since that time Stage of Unity, even with its strong roots in reggae, has gone through many changes and life experiences which enriched the sound. They’ve played Poland’s biggest festivals and re-activated in 2008. Their sound is strongly guitar- reggae and with

side trips into dub. Their strong point is the Kristafari vocalist with a true Jamaican voice. In 2010 their albums “Good Connection” and “Jah Bring I” were re-released by Lion Stage Records under the name “The Rainbow Power”. www.myspace.com/stageofunity

Dash

A crash of styles- mainly pop and alternative. The vocalists bring Kate Bush or Tori Amos to mind and the arrangements make your body move. Their concerts are energetic and full of emotion. Fans have compared them to Florence and the Machine or Moloko. The band is aware of visuals so their performances are a treat not only for the ear but also for the eye. www.myspace.com/dashchannel

Fifidroki

The unpredictable musical creativity of Fifidroki began in 2008 and grew into electrifying schizofolk. www.myspace.com/fifidroki

Checkolada

A mix of hip hop, funk and rock with a bit of country thrown in- all in the spirit of the ‘80’s. An important element of their creativity and image is a distance to reality and themselves. They “become” rap stars who, in post-Communist Poland, try to imitate their idols from the West. It’s an ironic parody of a large chunk of Polish hip-hop that tries to be more black than American hip-hop. www.myspace.com/checkolada

5/6.07 (Tues/Wed) WARM-UP „TRIBUTE TO ALL TRIBUTES”

Reggae Tent Crew – The mysterious name holds many surprises. Let’s remember the times of the first reggae tent, set up near “the big tree” (platanus), which was in 2004 AD, and the following years. There the “roots” and “modern roots” compositions reigned supreme, with the help of selector/DJ TomAll and the like. DJ Zamęt & Crew means you can’t know what’s coming… Puma i Jego Zona Soundsystem (PL/UK) – The core of the band “Puma i Jego Zona” are two charismatic vocalists, jawing their (sometimes pretty abstract) lyrics one by one at the same time. Żaba and Bąbel, together with their excellent band, reigned supreme in the Greater Poland concert halls in the mid 90’s heating up the audience. Years later they have come together to mingle even more, this time in the Soundsystem way. A good party’s in the pipeline!

Reggae tent 7/8.07 (Thur/Fri) The Roots’ Night

Czlowiek Gavron (Lodz) – A sing jay from central Poland, a member of Ras Bass and the vocalist of Pali Się Sunsystem and currently also Bieda Sound. Gawron is a lover of roots, dub, rocksteady and ragamuffin and melodic rhytmizing of words and sounds is his specialty and his hobby. Roots Defender feat. Natty B (Lublin) – “Outstanding”, as people speak of them, Jamaican sound system from Lublin. Formed by vinyl sounds, bass culture and genre pioneers enthusiasts of the kind of Lee Perry, The Heptones, Burning Spear or Big Youth. Supported by Kabat’s trombone (a musician known from “Sloma i Przedwietrze” among others), they defend the roots of reggae music, uniting it and rescuing it from oblivion during the cyclic gigs called “RootsEdukacja”. They enjoy UK dub, although during their shows they still prefer to use the Jamaican recordings from the 60’s, 70’s and the first half of the 80’s. The West Indies music straight from Eastern Poland.

8/9.07 (Fri/Sat) Dub Night

Muflon Dub Soundsystem (Białystok/ Lublin) – Our music is a compilation of all we can and are able to do… Samples, loops, special effects together with vocals and instruments (drums, melodica, flute, pan flute, guitar, keyboards)… Inspiration comes whenever and from wherever it will. People, places, emotions or music (especially Dub Syndicate, Yabby You, Congos, Christafari). It is sometimes an inspiration for a new text, new music or to record. A song can come to life in a day, month or a year. It’s a never-ending passion, but also a mission to saw the hot vibration and heat up the frozen world! Listen for yourself at muf.glt.pl .

Macca Dub (Lodz) – A cool number presenting the school of hard classic dub, digital dub, UK dub and hardstep dub. Caught the dub virus during the Original Bass Foundation and Audioactivity tour, which took place in Poland in the summer of 2004. As the time passed by, the dub virus connected with the vinyl virus. It caused a disease and it’s symptom is sharing the beloved sounds, regardless of the audience’s distrust. Japko Selecta (Lodz) – One of the best and longest active reggae selectors on the Lodz stage. His adventure with the gramophone began in the Dread Lion Crew (R.I.P.). Currently plays solo and takes part in many projects, also outside the genre (e.g. Sub-lo-matic). His selections are mainly dub stage and dubstep novelities, however he can sometimes surprise with some sophisticated classical sounds. myspace.com/japkoselecta

9/10.07 (Sat/Sun) Raggamuffin Night

Jam Vibez (Lodz) – Janek, Kleeb, Awiom – a group of three fans of good music, promoting the best sounds of digital reggae – raggamuffin – dub. On stage since 2005. Independent of popularity, they efficiently spread the joy and positive vibration flowing from Jamaican (although not only) recordings. They became famous on the Polish stage thanks to an album unrivalled through its uniqueness of a selection from the 80’s. The effect of this fascination was a very well received mixtape from 2008. www.jamvibez.net Reggae Tent Crew – and lastly, a surprise…

Wru& Prosfer Wru – not so greatly experienced, yet a very talented selector. So far, she has played in Wroclaw Vis-A-Vis and Szajba clubs. Her music paths are a kind of natural selection: from organic breakbeat to hip hop, rock, indie or electronic sounds like trip-hop, dubstep and drum-and-bass. Prosfer – in the beginning very mc, then a more hairy member of a duo JednoPiwoSound (OneBearSound). They musically terrorised Wroclaw clubs for some time. Selectively successively she goes from funk, breaks, rap i mashups to electro, dub, dubstep and jungle/dnb. Sum up? A mixture of Czech cinematography and Venice riot. Bon appetit! LoveStory is a musical Idea with a capital ”I”. ”The group was found from a general need for a good text about love.” Seriously. Objectively unique, thanks to genuineness.

David i Jodi Pierce

In the early ‘80’s David and Jodi started a meeting for punks and other rebels on a boat in the center of Amsterdam.

July 6- Up the Yangtze

The Yangtze River- 6300 km long, the longest Chinese river and one of the longest in the world. Plans for it harnessing it were laid 100 years ago. The surface covered by the lake formed by a giant dam is larger than Poland. That „Three Gorges Dam“ has inspired many Chinese artists. For Yung Chang, a documentary maker of Chinese descent who was raised in Montreal, the film „Up the Yangze“ is not just a sentimental voyage to his roots. The return to the river where his grandfather was raised became a pretext to showing a portrait of modern China.

July 7- Yes-Men Fix The World

When a gentleman representing Dow Chemical announced on BBC radio that his firm would pay compensation to the victims of an ecological catastrophe caused by the company, the interviewer was stunned. „We’ll do what we should have done long ago“ assured the company man. After 20 years not many people had hope that the chemical giant would show any heart, but the euphoria didn’t last long. The company quickly denied the information and the BBC requested an explanation on air. It turned out that the man who made the shocking promise had nothing to do with the company. „We wanted to remind everyone in this way that no one cares about vicitims today.“ he said. The results of the event were immediately seen. Dow stock plummeted and the company lost 2 million dollars in one day. The imposter was Yes-Man Andy Bichlbaum, a man whose goal is to make fools of the buisness world.

July 8- ARMADILLO- THE WAR IS IN US

Armadillo is the name of an army base in Helmund Province in southern Afghanistan. There are usually about 170 British and Danish soldiers stationed there. Some of them are young and treat their war experience as an adventure, test or challenge that they can’t resist. However during their six month tour of duty at the base their personalities and their characters are ra-

dically changed. They prepare carefully at home for their assignment, but once there spend night duty watching porno on lap-tops and, like little boys, enjoying life in the platoon. Their spontaneous bravado is short-lived however and ends abruptly. While fighting the Taliban, one of them is injured and his horrified face proves that this is no boy’s game or paint-ball match. All this is played out before the eyes of the world who looks on passively, taking the role of a silent witness to the war.

July 9- BLOOD ON YOUR PHONE

Do we really know what’s hidden in our phones? The director of this film reveals the strong and shocking connection between the cell-phone industry and illegal mining of raw materials in the Congo. Every cell-phone conversation supports this criminal buisness and augments profits from

illegal mining in the Congo. That country, which is so rich in natural resources, has been engulfed in war for years. So far almost 5 million people have died and over 300,000 women have been brutally raped.

NGO BREAKFAST

In addition to the films and the fair, each morning between 9.45 and 11.45 in location Café Wirydarz we’ll hold a NGO breakfast for people involved in the building of the Third Sector in Poland. This is especially for people who are actively involved in a NGO.

Hydrozagadka 70min dir. Andrzej Kondratiuk

“Never refuse when it comes to a just cause” If you think you’re too tired, just grab a cup of coffee and make your way to see this cult comedy hit from Andrzej Kondratiuk. It’s a miracle of Polish cinematography from 1970. The film is a cross between the grotesque and a parody with actors such as Zdzisław Maklakiewicz, Józef Nowak, Wiesław Gołas, and Ewa Szykulska. And since this is SAF… “The mosquitoes are biting so come inside”… to the Film tent. This film will change your life! You’ll never be the same! But, that’s not important! The “most important is following the rules of first aid, especially on a train!” The Butterfly Circus 20min dir. Joshua Weigel At the height of the Great Depression, the showman of a renowned circus leads his troupe through the devastated American landscape, lifting the spirits of audiences along the way. During their travels they discover a man without limbs at a carnival sideshow. However, after an intriguing encounter with the showman he becomes driven to hope against everything he has ever believed. Martijn i Zoe 42min dir. Kryspin Pluta Martijn and Zoe, father and growing daughter, are the main characters of this documentary by Kryspian Pluta. It is real, honest and funny in its presentation of the relationship between this father and daughter in a Dutch-Polish setting. It shows that no matter what your background,

profession or place of residence, each of us struggles at sometime in a parent-child relationship. The question is- can such a difficult relationship also be beautiful? This documentary breaks the stereo-types of father-daughter relations. Worth seeing! Na yek Tavahom (Not an Illusion) 83min dir. Torang Abedian Sara is a young Iranian with a great voice - but women shouldn’t sing solo in public, according to the laws in Iran. However, Sara is determined -

she was a champion gymnast who was disabled in a freak accident, and doesn’t want to give up. „Na yek Tavahom (Not an Illusion)” follows Sara and her musician friends over five years through the ups and down in Tehran’s underground music scene. It’s a human story about hope, the struggle to achieve a dream, resistance and the fight for cultural freedom. A documentary which gives a deep insight to an explosive society caught between modernity and tradition as never seen before. A true story of the underground musicians of Iran. Erratum 90min dir. Marek Lechki A film where not words, but beautiful filming, close-ups and the crew bring out the essence of what sits deepest in a man- a longing for close relationships, dreams and lost passions. The director proves that it doesn’t take an abundance of words to show something that is wise, full and very mature. Erratum shows us, as well, that a great film isn’t dependant on a big budget or publicity but on that “something”, as well as talent, that all creators should have. This film was awarded the “Debut of the Year” at the 35th Gdynia Film Festival and has been awarded at festivals worldwide. Strongly recommended! Złota Rybka 69min dir. Tomasz Wolski A film about a social therapy center in the best tradition of Polish documentaries, reminiscent of the works of Piwowski, Bławut and Lankosz. This “not normal” world turns out to be more normal than the world around us. There is less hatred and more kindness. This gentle film doesn’t ask us to look AT others, but to look WITH others with other eyes.

It provides opportunity to look at where you are and how you have gotten there, it is also a response to your surroundings and a platform for others.

Reporters from the film school in Łódż

“This exhibit was created for the need of the moment. Important moments were captured on film with faith that our touching the world would meet with a reaction- create a discussion. Feature reports and photo-reports play an important role in media. Regardless of technical advancements they will always provide a foundation of knowledge about man and the world around him. I believe that our students will make that challenge easier.” prof. Krzysztof Hejke

The Infantilizators. Albert Oszek

Graduate of the Art Academy of Krakow. Painter, graphic artist. Creates cultural art involved in presenting man lost in a world of commercialism and consumption. Inspiration is drawn from masks and figures from art of the Pacific Islands as well as anti- globalism ideology. The theme of the project, “The Infantilizators” comes from the idea of etosu infantylizmu, used by Benjamin R. Barber in his book, “ Consumed”, where “the market ruins children, makes adults infantile and swallows up citizens.” This idea describes contemporary consumers as “shopaholics”, addicts against their will, manipulated from childhood. “The Infantilizators” is a cycle of acrylic paintings on canvas as well as plaster sculptures depicting small-adult figures addicted to possessing un-necessary products. The series is an attempt to laugh at human weaknesses by showing in an grotesque manner certain uncontrolled behaviors of man, whose biggest desire is to identify with the wonderful world of advertising.

Student at the Art Academy of Łódź and for the last few months at the MSGSU in Istanbul. My time spent in this weird, crowded city inspired this work that is similar to its source. It’s a collection of photos, notes and thoughts from my months spent in Turkey. The artist tells of seeking her way in a place where very few things are tame and all things taste new.

The goal of the project torbyzplakatów.pl is to give these ads a new life and promote the idea of recycling.

Robotnicza 36/38, 53-608 Wrocław Poland SLOT is a platform unifying young people for whom Christianity is the inspiration for involvement in culture, education and society. SLOT is a more of a movement than an organization. It is hard to set the borders of ideas when those ideas are carried by individuals. SLOT is a channel to break through human indifference, intolerance, selfishness and apathy. SLOT is a space to meet people who want to share themselves, their spirituality, art, abilities and skills with others in an atmosphere of true openness, love and creativity. SLOT is a non-profit organization, which means taxpayers in Poland may give 1% of their income taxes to SLOT each year. SLOT is not a profit-making or commercial organization. All profits are used to realize the goals set out in its statutes. To support SLOT please send a bank transfer to: ING Bank Śląski S.A.
