Film Returns to Silesia

     The aim of the article is the analysis of the issue of the place, local identity, individual memory in the most recent Silesian movies: My Niemandsland (directed by Wojciech Królikowski, 2016) and Stars (directed by Jan Kidawa-Błoński, 2017). In those works draw attention different perspective on Silesia as geocultural region and originality of approach to the subject of locality, which suggest wider interpretation - the change of attitude that takes place in contemporary cultural representations. There is visible not only a tendency to overcome the stereotypes, but also placing emphasis on 'borderland' as a feature of a space and as a syndrome of a particular psycho-cultural attitude characteristic for citizens of 'borderland'. The way of presenting of Silesianity in the analysed films depicts critical approach to the place, taking into account features necessary to its opening, inner dynamics and processuality (constant expansion).
