THE WIZARD OF U.S.
POLISH TITLE: CZARNOKSIĘŻNIK Z KRAINY U.S.
This animated variation on L. Frank Baum’s novel The Wonderful Wizard of Oz is a fanciful story combined with authentic contributions of women recorded by the filmmakers. One day, Dorothy is blown off by a tornado and carried away to the United States. Here, she confronts the reality standing behind the American dream: politics, the economy and violence, which are nothing like a fairy tale.
