    “Rebirth” is a philosophical story of human desire for transcendence and a Faustian dream of achieving immortality through creation at a symbolic level. It is a story of the cycle of life - from birth of an idea through its materialisation, adolescence to decay and finally - a rebirth.

    Through “Rebirth” Kizny continues the endeavour started back in 2010 in a short film “The Chapel” (, set in a unique space of an abandoned Protestant temple in Zeliszow, Poland, supposedly designed by a famous German architect Carl Langhans, known for the Brandenburg Gate and numerous other famous designs in Europe.

    “Rebirth” develops the subjects further on a multiple new layers - starting from the idea and the narrative to an impressive range of applied visual techniques. In the film, besides of “standard” cinematography of dance scenes in the final act and motion-controlled HDR timelapse visuals known from “The Chapel”, used to render the glory of the temple as perceived by the artist, Kizny in an innovative way makes use of laser scans of the building directly as a means of expression and a novel element of film language. Through this technique the audience can witness the process of creation of an architectonic object as imagined by a genius architect long before the object is materialised. An industry insider will trace lots of other techniques applied, such as particle simulations, motion capture or photogrammetry.

    However, this project is is much more than the film.

    As far as “The Chapel” was intended as an artistic tribute and a testament, it turned out to be a salvation for the abandoned decaying chapel, triggering a chain of events: from grabbing wide public and media attention, raising the awareness of the temple, through establishment of an independent foundation “Twoje Dziedzictwo” ( taking over the temple and carrying out the first work towards preserving and renovating the building.
    “Rebirth” touches very universal subjects posing a question of responsibility of the mankind for its history and for the future.

    Although the work on the film spanned over a 4-year period and the first steps had been executed while the future of the temple was not clear, today it becomes a proof for artist’s belief that through art and vision one can impact and transform reality.

    Banff World Tour Info:

    Mountains in Motion: The Canadian Rockies is an award-winning short film documenting the life of the alpine landscape through time-lapse photography. In an effort to highlight the wildness of these mountain places and how they have inspired explorers of the past, present and future, time-lapse sequences were patiently gathered from exposed summits, by glacial lakes, and under aurora-filled skies.

    Hours and even months of change lapses in a matter of seconds, providing the viewer with a rare insight into the ever-changing nature of the landscape. Weaving throughout the film are reflections of an early mountaineer, who is deeply moved by his own encounter with the mountains and the revelations of explorers who have come before him. “What is this power that lures me upwards, into the unknown,” he wonders, “that pulls me deeper, despite snow, wind and exhaustion?”

    Made on a shoestring budget and with entirely volunteer hours, the film brought together artists from two vastly different parts of North America - Banff, Alberta, and Atlanta, Georgia. Strangers at the start, the film team developed strong friendships over the course of production and were united by their common goal of capturing the beauty and essence of a place that inspires them every day.

    This 100% human-powered film combines advanced time-lapse photography with an original story and musical score to bring the landscape center-stage and offers a thrilling new perspective that re-establishes the Canadian Rockies among the finest mountains in the world.
