A Documentary Film

Marcin Podolec
Poland 2015 / 7’

A portrait of a man whose adult children have moved far away from their small town family home, and nostalgic memories fill the final moments of professional activity is a natural extension of the director’s graphic art. The loneliness of the somewhat eccentric protagonist is illustrated by moving comic book-like frames, which harmoniously combine image, dialogue and visual metaphors.
