not2short 2012/ a short film festival, Halifax, UK

    Film inspired by the theoretic work of George Berkeley and basics of synesthetic perception.
    It's a game of imagination provoked by sound. Individual sounds penetrating into the apartment of the main character relieved of their visual designates evoke images distant from its origins.

  3. Stop-motion mixed with CG, short film based on a polish lullaby written by Janina Porazińska. Author of original music unknown. Performed by Maria Peszek.

    A home made project, which I graduated with at my film school in Poland.
    It combines cut out animation and 3d set-ups.

    Lyrics, translated by Magda Bryll:

    Once in a time,there lived a king
    A princess and page together
    They knew no tears, they knew no fears
    They knew no stormy weather

    The king loved her so, the page loved her so
    They loved her each their way
    She loved them both with all her heart
    And more with every day

    But fate was cruel, and their demise
    A most uncanny slaughter
    A dog ate the king, a cat ate the page
    A mouse ate the princess-daughter

    Yet you should not fret, my darling child
    You should neither mourn nor cry
    The king was sweet cane, the page: gingerbread
    The princess was marzipan pie...

  4. In May 2010, after record rainfall, flash flood broke embankments of the Vistula near Wilkow. Catastrophic flooding deprived thousands of people of all their possessions as well as the roof over their heads. A few weeks later in my family house ravaged by the element, I found a box of old photographs. The only left family mementoes were destroyed by water, mud and mold. Rapid documentation enabled to stop progressing decay just for a brief moment, leaving in my memory the image of excruciating emptiness. What was left, were only some fragments of compositions, shreds of portraits and silhouettes hard to identify. Photographs touched by dampness blurred, went into pieces leaving rich structure of marks, stains and chips.
    This film is a desperate attempt to keep memories, reconstruct people and events of the past. An impression on the transitory nature of memory, inevitability of fading and the destructive force of elements.
