PROGRAMME:

(total running time: 88’)

THE SUPREME | NAJWYSZY
dir. Katarzyna Gondek, PL 2013, 20’ (documentary)

Katarzyna Gondek brought her video camera between the majesty and the grinder. She took a pious look on the biggest pope in the world: a 14-metre-high statue of John Paul II made of composite. As a result, we are watching with disbelief a documentary about a belief that constructs. 

FISZ EMADE TWORZYWO - DUST | FISZ EMADE TWORZYWO - PY
dir. Marek Skrzecz, PL 2014, 5’ (music video)

There have been many literary works and films about Polish holidays. Marek Skrzecz complements this collection with a video clip about a holiday that happens 52 times in a year: Saturday. Dust is a story of a brilliant tractor driver who is able to dance the transformation of Polish countryside.

A BLUE ROOM | NIEBIESKI POKÓJ
dir. Tomasz Siwiski, PL 2014, 14’ (animation)

Tomasz Siwiski painted pain. He painted it with blue which is considered a soothing colour. Together with the main protagonist we end up in a closed room where there is only a view but no way out. Don’t try to break the screen.

FRAGMENTS | FRAGMENTY
dir. Aga Woszczyska, PL 2014, 25’ (live action)

The world presented in Fragments falls slowly apart. A pair of protagonists renounces reality in a designer dungeon taken on credit but there is no place left even for emotions. If you feel cold during this film, it is not because the air conditioning got broken.

THAT WOULD BE BEAUTIFUL | TO BYOBY CO PIKNEGO
dir. Anna Morawiec, PL 2014, 17’ (documentary)

Mrs Aleksandra keeps both feet on the ground. That is why she has decided to live on Mars. She made her decision after she had found out what kind of future the Social Insurance Institution (ZUS) prepared for her. Anna Morawiec provides a profound research on the relationship between Polish pension system and the universe.

TECHNICOLOR YAWN | TECHNICOLOR YAWN
dir. Arek Nowakowski, PL 2014, 2’ (music video) 

You have certainly experienced a lot. You have seen it all, been to many places and spoken with various people. Right? Now you will experience, see and hear even more. This juicy video clip lacks only boredom.

BATHS | ANIA
dir. Tomek Ducki, PL 2013, 4’ (animation)

Here there are two old women who are getting into the water once again to swim their usual distance. This time will be different, the other way around. In this unusual animation by Tomek Ducki the double bottom exists for real.
