The Treachery of Hope in O-Bi, O-Ba: The End Of Civilization

There is far too much for me to unpack in O-Bi O-Ba The End Of Civilization and if it is to be unpacked I am not the right one for the job. The film is Polish and although I am in fact 1/4 Polish I certainly don’t know enough about Polish history or politics to fully explore all the messages and meanings in this very dense film. However, I recognize and understand enough to fuel this attempt at engaging with it.
