So That It Doesn’t Hurt (1998, 45’) by Marcel Łoziński
Urszula Flis was born into a traditional family of Polish farmers and was expected to follow the ways of her small home village. Instead of marrying, she opted to run her household on her own, taking care of her elderly mother and devoting all of her free time to her true passion: reading. Her vast knowledge of literature enabled her to correspond with some of the key intellectuals of her day. Marcel Łoziński depicted her as a young woman in his own short The Visit (1974) and followed up in 1998 with the documentary So that It Doesn’t Hurt, which show Urszula, reflecting on her life choices. The films is a unique portrait by one of the greatest Polish filmmakers.
