By the River

Przy rzece (Orig.) / 2006 / Poland / 11 min

Kilka mniejszych wygranych (Orig.) / 2008 / Poland / 15 min

In the modern city there is no place for a small booth with lottery. It has to be demolished together with the close relations between its regular customers.


poparz 1

Take a Look

Popatrz (Orig.) / 2008 / Poland / 4 min

Blind children invite us for a journey to their world of sensibility and imagination. Using the sense of touch they try to tell, what is on the picture.





“My work has two strands: the first one deals with direct political images of violence, aggression and protest, mostly in Israeli-Palestinian context. It’s critique of news media, researching the complex, both realistic and surrealistic aspects of these images. The second strand of videos is more abstract and universal, dealing with cognitive, environmental and existential issues,” says the director about his works.
