USA 2016 4'
30.09 FR 20.30, 01.10 SA 15.00 @Katowice City of Gardens: room 211

PERFORMED BY: Poliça
DIRECTED BY: Isaac Gale

Until recently, the “Sesame Street” Muppets taught kids to respect their peers and be themselves. Now they are showing how to handle the brutality of police. In his subversive video for Poliça, Isaac Gale showcases the characters from his favorite childhood animation as symbolic opponents to police violence. In the video, a vivid picture of children learning how to answer during interrogations or how to put on gas masks is confronted with the photographs of armed units. The American band asks the questions which have not lost their validity since the ’60s: does the current system, upheld by the law and forced upon us, make any sense? How can a human being live in it on their own terms?
