"I first heard the name Wojciech Has in my early twenties, while attending a midnight screening of The Saragossa Manuscript at Manhattan's Elgin Cinema. Although I'd never taken LSD, by the time the movie ended at 3 AM, I felt like I'd experienced a drug-induced high from the hallucinatory displacement of a Polish film, set in Spain, about a Belgian officer, told as a spiraling story-within-a-story (no wonder it was the favorite film of The Grateful Dead's Jerry Garcia).” - Annette Insdorf
In celebration of Insdorf's new book, Intimations: The Cinema of Wojciech Has, Metrograph presents this one-time-only screening of The Saragossa Manuscript, which will include an introduction and book signing with the author.
