The new film by Joanna Rajkowska and Robert Yerachmiel Sniderman uses specially developed marionettes to tell the story of a hunt in the ever-shrinking forests of Kujawsko-Pomorskie in Poland. Its protagonists—the corpses of hunted animals—journey through a series of situations, soundscapes, and recitations that mix historical invocations with the intimate family entanglements of both artists.

On the occasion of the film’s premiere on Paranoia TV, Rajkowska and Sniderman join David Riff for a conversation about Ashkenazi medicinal folklore, the cursed writings of Baruch Spinoza, and the coming insurrection of human and non-human life.


Joanna Rajkowska (1968, Bydgoszczy, Poland) is an artist creating sculptures, photography, drawings, objects, and installations, as well as projects in public space. Her work is characterized by a generous dose of irony as well as a certain distance from the highly controversial issues it tackles and the broad public debates it sometimes sparks. She lives in Warsaw and London.

Robert Yerachmiel Sniderman (1986, Philadelphia, USA) is a poet, performance, and visual artist. He has written, orchestrated, and performed in many experimental plays, collective and solo actions. He lives in Bellingham, Washington.
