Event Details

Dir. Piotr Subbotko
2010, 30 minutes

Glasgow is the story of Damian, a 12-year-old boy who is convinced that his father is a well-known football player in the club Celtic Glasgow. During the holidays, the boy tries to earn enough money to afford a trip to Scotland, so he helps a retired man Miecio in household repairs.  He falls in love with a 15-year-old pregnant girl Monika and wants to provide a better world for both of them.

The Contest (Konkurs)
Dir. Jakub Cuman
2010, 30 minutes

The Contest is a documentary observation made during the International Fryderyk Chopin Piano Competition Preliminaries in 2010.  It depicts the world of contestants' inner deliberations and emotions. The documentary also questions the point of competition in art, which tends to be judged in the same category as sport, while at the same time deprived of its main features such as intimacy, independence and individuality.

Mother (Matka)
Dir. Jakub Piatek
2010, 10 minutes

A meeting room in a Polish jail. Tables screwed to the floor. One hour that must do for two weeks, sometimes a month. On one side: husbands, sons, fathers; on the other: children, wives, mothers. The world of one of those mothers.

Dir. Przemysław Adamski
2011, 8 minutes

In essence, this film is an audiovisual work. However, sound plays the leading role here to some extent, anticipating the generation of images. At the same time, the film is also a play of imagination provoked by the sound. The noises seeping into the protagonist's flat are subject to his individual interpretation, offering random images, which interact with each other. Individual sounds deprived of their visual correlations evoke images, which are often remote from their sources in reality.
