We were deeply sorry to read that Joe Szabo passed away. Satyrykon owes a lot to him. When we were just trying, doing our best to make an international festival here in Legnica, Poland, so separated from the West in the 80., we suddenly got the message that “Witty World” writes about it (1987). He was the one to notice us. We’ve been always boasting about the consequences of this warm and continuous attention (“Witty World” Grand Prix label) and we’ll be always proud of it. Joe Szabo visited us in Legnica as Satyrykon 1996 juror and it was a significant event for us and for our town.
We’re grateful for everything.
