From legendary Polish master-director Wojciech Has Hourglass Sanatorium is a cinematic adaptation of renowned writer Bruno Schulz’ Sanatorium Under The Sign Of The Hourglass. This magnificent newly restored edition is one of the first Polish films to be restored in HD, by the outstanding Polish cinematographer Witold Sobocinski, giving it amazing depth of field and excellent definition.

Set in the pre-World War II era, the film sees Joseph (Jan Nowicki) travelling on a strange, dilapidated train to see his dying father (Tadeusz Kondrat) in a sanatorium. Upon arrival though, he finds a hospital crumbling into ruin, where time is slowed down in order to maintain his father’s life signs.
