IndieLisboa - Lech Kowalski: Rebel with a cause
from Diary of a Married Man from East Of Paradise

The third edition of IndieLisboa doesn't have any film from Poland. However there are two films of a director with Polish seeds: Lech Kowalski

Lech Kowalski is a major figure in the American underground. From porno to punk, from fiction to documentary, Kowalski is there for the outsiders. The edge of society.

In the Observatory section of the festival, "East Of Paradise" appears as reflection about identity. Thirty years later , Kowalski invites his mother to recall her past, a history that is also his own. The film is divided in two episodes. Two life stories. Kowalski's mother and Kowalski himself. Who are we and why are we like this ?

In the Lab section: "Diary of a Married Man". A moment of reality in three acts, not all just mere provocation, quite the opposite. Without a care, throws taboos in our face and is intentionally shocking.
