February 5 2009 Polish Culture Newsletter
Welcome Polish Culture Newsletter Subscribers!
The snow melted again! I do not know whether Miss Winter visits us again but I ALMOST snowboarded last weekend:) I went to Myslenice (small town nearby Krakow) with a friend of mine and we took the chairlift to the peak of slope called Chelm. I have always lived in Krakow and never knew that we have so good skiing conditions only 30 minutes away from us! Well, good for beginners, that is for me:)
So... what is the new article about? Mr Inkblot, one of the most popular teachers of Poland! Of course, as in every fairy tale, his academy is not an ordinary one. His students are surrounded by characters from other fairy tales, learn about meaning of their dreams and joyfully sing songs about the duck who became a hare, lazy boy who spent the whole day on the couch and Bergamuta Islands where one saw a donkey that was being carried by an ant. All of them are still popular hits among all Polish songs for children. Therefore I invite you to read the article about the film. I am sure you will easily find the movie under the name Akademia Pana Kleksa or Mr Inkblots Academy.
In the bottom of the Newsletter you may find the links that lead to 3 popular songs from the film. I hope you will enjoy it as much as I enjoy it each time watching!
Academy of Mr Kleks, a film review
The film about Mr Inkblot and the students of his school is one of the most popular Polish movies for children. The story takes us into the world of fairy-tales while marvellous songs entertain the young and the old.
And here are the links to youtube, where you might find the songs:
Weird Duck (Kaczka Dziwaczka)
On Bergamuta Islands (Na Wyspach Bergamuta)
Welcome in our fairy tale (Witajcie w naszej bajce)

All the best and have a great weekend! I will spend my Friday evening with a friend from the USA who got enchanted by Poland so much that he visits the country regularly! Why not to follow his example?:) Thinks about it!:)
