Don't Be Afraid of the Dark Room

Don't be Afraid of the Dark Room
Dir. Kuba Czekaj
2009, 35 minutes

This is a story of an endless love of an 11-year-old girl, Łata, for her father.  Łata is preparing a song for a school play, organized to celebrate the forthcoming Father's Day. In an attempt to describe her feelings for her dad as best as she can, she slowly begins to uncover his hidden secrets.

The Lake (Jezioro)
Dir. Jacek Piotr Bławut Jr
2012, 30 minutes

"The Lake" tells a story of a man who tries to uncover his wife's secret after her death. The film illuminates intricate interpersonal relationships and attempts to regain the lost time to better understand a person that is already gone. The lake was a large part of the wife's life and once she passes away it becomes an obsession of her husband. The place enchants with its beauty, but it also poses a threat. The overwhelming curiosity, a desire to get closer to his wife, and maybe even a need to search for faded emotions make the main character go deeper and deeper into the lake abyss.

Alien VI (Obcy VI)
Dir. Borys Lankosz
2008, 30 minutes

A young Jewish man unexpectedly arrives in a small town. His image, with his long and curly
sideburns sticking out from under his black hat, reminds the locals of an era that is long gone,
or one that might have never really existed. The town will never be the same as it was after he
leaves, and certainly not during the first two weeks.
