Once There Was a King

Tytus Majerski
Był sobie król
Poland 2011 / 5’

An interpretation of a lullaby based on a poem written by Polish poet Janina Porazińska. A boy, living with his parents in a small, wooden house sees planes flying overhead in formation. The planes are passing by silently, harbingers of evil. The plot has two layers. The literal illustration of the lullaby sang by boy’s mother becomes interwoven with his life.
