Opera about Poland

  • Poland
Audio Tracks 

Opera about Poland is a film that functions through collage, combining elements of archival footage, documentary, staged scenes, press reports, social announcements, sale offers and speech excerpts, all in an attempt to answer the question: Pole, who are you? The film refers to the Polish tradition of a creative documentary in the style of Wojciech Wiszniewski, and presents various manifestations of Polishness, that can be situated under the headings of patriotic and religious rituals, everyday tradition, landscapes portraiture, and intimate memories from childhood
