The Newbie

Tomasz Olejarczyk
Poland 2009 / 19’

Lonely, seventeen-year-old Ania (title Nowa) seeks acceptance in a group of her peers playing risky, city games. In the process, she loses faith in the values she believed in. Having nothing more to lose, she comes up with a reckless game that is to impress everybody, especially the group’s leader – Czarny. Surprising finale gives the protagonists a chance for normality. The film was inspired by the second commandment: “You shall make no wrongful use of the name of your God”.

Tomasz Olejarczyk
