WHAT IS LOVE - A film about the meaning of life, about how to fill the gap between birth and death, and what happiness is. Short documentary pieces tell the stories of different protagonists of one generation.

WE WILL BE HAPPY ONE DAY - „We Will Be Happy One Day“ is a documentary film about Daniel, a young man from Lipiny - the poorest town in the southern Poland. Daniel wants out of the omnipresent misery. With a cell phone camera in his hand he wanders around his neighbourhood asking kids and grownups questions about their dreams. Are they going to come true, at least, for some of them? However, in the process of Daniel’s filming there emerges a hidden layer: the love between him and his charismatic grandmother. But will he ever manage to complete his film?

THE BLACK BOX - Tomasz Tomaszewski (*1953 in Warsaw) is a famous photographer who was working for many Polish newspapers, documenting historical events in Poland (such as Lech Wałęsa and Gdańsk Shipyard, Solidarity, protests in Warsaw). Since December 1981, during the Martial law, using his camera hidden in a glove, he managed to capture the warfare: tanks on the streets of Warsaw, soldiers suppressing manifestations and many more. Those photos were smuggled abroad by diplomats and published in foregin press. He also took some unique photos by smuggling camera in a jamjar with the instructions how to use it to Polish prisons. The most important and famous picture from this action was a photo of imprisoned Lech Wałęsa. It was published in newspapers all over the world.

NEW LIFE - This film is a story of a big Slovak catholic family, which has been left by the father. Mother Jana, five daughters and one son Adam were suddenly left alone. Adam decided to put up with this huge change in his life in a very strong way, to shoot this film, as the „last man standing“ in the family. This film tells the story of how one man cannot manage seven women, and how seven women can fight for one man. How can he learn from parent’s divorce and how can he teach his sisters to divorce well in the future?

“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.
