I Am Far Away

Tushar Prakash
Jestem daleko
Poland 2010 / 11’

This documentary is based on an Indian's perspective on the city of Lodz. Apart from trying to explain the characters of the city to my mother, it tries to display the the journey from the first impressions to a deeper acceptance of a city which might seem industrial, grey and depressive. Shot on 35mm, over a period of 7 days from various vantage points around the city at diffrent times, the film is tied together with narrations in Hindi and poetry and music in Polish. It also pays its tribute to Kieslowski's From the city of Lodz' in its own little way...
