The End of the World

Mateusz Skalski
Kres świata
Poland 2010 / 9’

A small, almost desolate village. It makes no sense to look for young people here – since there are no prospects for them, they left to look for jobs – to the city or abroad. Only the elderly remained. Their everyday lives are marked by routine, repeatable activities. As they say, many depends on a season – it’s better in summer, in winter every day is a struggle for survival. The only entertainment and a window onto the world is a mobile bakery which stops in the village every day.
