Identification Marks: None / Hands Up! (Region B)

Type: New Blu-Ray

Two early features from EO director Jerzy Skolimowski, released on Blu-ray for the first time in the UK

Presented on Blu-ray for the first time in the UK, these two early features by Jerzy Skolimowski (EO, Deep End) offer a rare insight into the cinematic origins and evolution of one of Europe’s most significant filmmakers.

Skolimowksi himself stars in his 1965 film Identification Marks: None, charting a day in the life of a student, Andrzej Leszczyc, as he prepares for army service. But as Andrzej tries to straighten out his life before his departure, he encounters Barbara. Is she the woman he’s been waiting for?

The fourth in the series of works featuring his celluloid alter ego Andrzej, Hands Up! Finds Skolimowski once again on screen. The film was made in 1967 but banned for 14 years under Poland’s communist regime. Skolimowski later revisited Hands Up! and added a sequence that explains why it was originally blocked by the censors.
