COMPETITION FILMS SHORT WAVES GRAND PRIX 2014:

(duration time: 102') 

ZIEGENORT
dir. Tomasz Popakul, PL 2013, 19’ (animation)

A small village at the seaside. A father who works a lot tries to teach his teenage son how to be a fisherman. An introvert boy-fish will have to take part in his first real rivalry. The world discovered by the boy is full of disturbing signs and intriguing observations that often evoke fear in him.

RESONANCE
dir. Mateusz Sadowski, PL 2013, 6’16” (experimental film)

An outcome of reading and thinking about physical theories proposing the existence of parallel worlds and disputes tackling the issue of whether the world has a linear (analogous) or non-linear (discrete) structure and finding balance between divergent traits by reading, for example, Robert Walser. The film was created simultaneously with the process of exploring the aforenamed topics.

OUR CURSE
dir. Tomasz Sliwinski, PL 2013, 27’ (documentary)

The film is a personal statement of the director who together with his wife has to deal with an extremely rare and incurable disease of their newborn child - the Ondine’s curse (the congenital central hypoventilation syndrome). The patients stop breathing when they are asleep and need to have their breathing supported by a medical ventilator. The film shows the process of taming the fear connected with the disease. 

AN INCREDIBLY FLEXIBLE MAN
dir. Karolina Specht, PL 2013, 4’57” (animation)

A story of a man who was born without his own shape. Constant deformations and squeezing into someone else’s forms evoke a feeling of rebellion in him. Can he live completely independently from others and in isolation from reality? Who and what decides on who we actually are?

HOSANNA
dir. Katarzyna Gondek, PL 2013, 9’30” (feature film)

Hosanna is a story of a lively girls who enters the world of her grandmother - a bigot and wreaks sweet havoc in it. The granddaughter discovers a bizarre collection of grandmother’s friends and gradually examines their role in her life. The girl’s curiosity ruins and builds all over again the grandmother’s grand scheme of things.

MOTHER
dir. Lukasz Ostalski, PL 2013, 30’ (feature film)

Malgorzata (Danuta Stenka), a prominent politician, goes to a house by the lake. Her son, a drug addict, needs help. Malgorzata asks her daughter for support. When they reach the house, they discover a semiconscious boy and a massacred body of a young girl. In the time of a tragedy their mutual relations get complicated and hidden resentments are revealed. The mother has to make the most difficult decision in her life.

UNCONSCIOUS
re. Martyna Iwanska, PL 2013, 4’56” (teledysk)

A video clip to a track created by the Rebeka duo. The duo takes part in the clip but the most important are the leading characters played by Maria Cieslak and Piotr Stramowski as well as ascetic scenography. Unconscious is a story of hypnotizing and disturbing love relationship, a one-sided relation with surprising surrounding.
