Episode Summary

EDIT
Adam Repucha
AIRED:
I’d never been to Poland. The idea never really excited me, to the contrary in fact; the place seemed cold, and I wasn’t expecting anything big. The shock, then, was overwhelming, and Adam’s music was the soundtrack to my short trip. Réal : Vincent Moon Tourné à Varsovie The first time I met Adam Repucha, he was by my side in the audience at a small concert in the centre of Warsaw. An American musician was in town; no one knew his name, but the information was flying around (It sounded like ‘An American is here!’ as if it were a breath of fresh air). During the concert, the American musician asked the crowd, “What would you do with a time machine?” – surely an introduction to his next song, although I can’t remember – and Adam answered, as quickly as he could, “Play a song that I hadn’t written yet!” It was then that I decided filming him would be a good idea. I’d discovered Adam via a sad little youtube video sent to me a few days before I’d left for Poland. The link to this young guy who hadn’t yet released anything had been sent to me by Magdalena, my only Polish contact. I’d wanted to meet him, seduced by the tone of his voice, and by this drifting body, so Rimbaudian. Above all, filming songs sung in Polish, though the words may sound rough. Réal : Vincent Moon Tourné à Varsovie I arrived in Warsaw by bus, or by train, I can’t remember, directly from Berlin, where I’d spent two days filming Bruno S, who passed away two weeks later. Warsaw was a pit stop before Krakow, a city that excites the imagination quite a bit more – but to think about it, the history of the disappearing world forms the history of the emerging one, and it is evident that life can’t be found in a museum. We have to figure out if we’re seeking true life or its representation. I would have liked to film Adam longer, to tamoreless
