In the end of July 2014 Kick, Indian action film partly recorded in Warsaw, debuted in cinemas. This year debuts Bangistan, Indian film partly recorded in Krakow (Polish: Kraków), Poland.
Watch official trailer of Bangistan, or in cinemas starting on 31.07.2015.
There is also another video – music video Saturday Night. The image of Kraków isn’t too real of course, but there are some real things in there too:
- traditional Krakow clothing – in the very beginning of the video.
- a band marching through the town. Some time ago I was writing about street bands in Warsaw – more exactly about their monument. The musicians wear regular clothes, not traditional clothing. The bands are usually travelling through courtyards.
- Polish language. The first two sentences were “Więc zaczynamy. Idziemy w tany.” which means “So we begin. We go dancing (=partying).” Tany is bit old-fashioned word for taniec (dance).
- sprayed mimes (0:40 and 1:55) or living sculptures – they’re really standing in Krakow’s Old Town. If you want a photo together, pay (as much as you wish). It’s nice to pay them anyway if you’re taking their photo. It’s a tough job.
- Old Town.
- historical reconstructions are popular in Poland, but the music video’s armors/clothes/flags were a chaotic mix.
Will you watch Bangistan?
