Contrary to the standardization of a single hegemonic point of view, the “center” in the tropics is not the whole. It is the starting point of a powerful range of visions. This is a trip into the core of its multiple indomitable condition.

I Think You Should Come to America by Kamila Kuc, 20:25 / super8,16mm, found footage / experimental, documentary / 2018 / UK
Using 16mm archival footage, excerpts from my letters from a Native American prisoner, documentation of my own involvement with the Movement for the Supporters of Native American Indian Rights in Poland, the film explores a paradoxical fascination of the Poles behind the Iron Curtain with the ideal of America as a ‘land of freedom.’ I Think You Should Come to America investigates the cultural conditions in which memories are created. While critically evaluating my own enchantment with America, as a teenage girl from Communist Poland, I interrogate various patterns of perception in order to produce a form of reflection that is personal and political. The film uses numerous American educational films to expose the patterns of cultural (mis)representation. Thus the film brings together a network of complex cultural forces that wish to find their expression in the act of historical and personal self-inscription.
Kamila Kuc, Ph.D., MFA, is a filmmaker, writer and curator. Her films have screened in venues and at film festivals nationally and internationally. She is the author of Visions of Avant-Garde Film (Indiana University Press, 2016).
