Golden Lions 2023 for the song “Kos” by Paul Maloney

– We have awarded the complete film – said Filip Pajon, president of this year’s jury, announcing that the Golden Lions of the 48th Polish Feature Film Festival went to “Kos” by Pawel Malona.

It’s an excellent movie. It takes place in Poland in the 18th century. Tadeusz Kościuszko returns from the United States with an African-American companion. Driven by the idea of ​​rebellion, he finds himself in the middle of class struggles between nobles, peasants, conquerors, landowners, state officials, and common bandits. Paweł Maślona, ​​in a film composed of several very expressive characters, goes beyond the boundaries of costume cinema. Because violence and cruelty do not know the framework of a historical era, and the national character is shaped by decades of disputes, wounds, and accounts of mistakes. This brilliantly realized story, devoid of the stereotype of the national hero, says more about our attitude to politics, power, freedom, and social inequality, and turns out to be very contemporary. There is no point in comparing the movie “Blackbird” to the cinema of Tarantino or even Peckinpah. It’s a very Polish work. It’s not easy, but it’s exciting to watch. And smart. Maślony’s film also received three other awards – for Robert Więckiewicz’s supporting male role, editing and make-up.
