Three Minutes: A Lengthening12A
Nasielsk is a small village some 30 miles north of Warsaw. In 1938, when the three-minute piece of footage at the heart of this film was shot, it had a population of 7,000, with almost half being Jewish. The film, once a snippet capturing everyday life, has become a record of a world that irrevocably changed during the Second World War. A compelling documentary that attempts to identify those who appear in the film and explore the human stories hidden within the celluloid.
‘This arresting film is about a vivid process of reconstruction, or recontextualisation…This is a gripping historical investigation.’
Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
‘It provides a vital memorial to the people whose lives have been lost to time, revealing the significance of preserving film as much as preserving history.’
Marina Ashioti, Little White Lies

Our beautiful art deco inspired auditorium can be found just off East Oxford's Cowley Road. We are open 7 days a week. We open the cinema and box office 30 minutes before the scheduled start time of each film, and the Box Office then closes 10 minutes after the film starts. We don’t show adverts, just a couple of trailers, so don't be late as the film itself starts very close to the advertised time!
