Limbs of Sun

dir. Krzysztof Skonieczny, Jacqueline Sobiszewski
Poland 2016 / 12’
subtitles: Polish and English

The starting point is a colorless landscape in South-West US. Black-and-white images of the American landscape evoke anxiety, which is reinforced by instrumental music. From images of palm trees and a bustling city to a quiet, dark desert. Somewhere in the background appear figures and the faces of residents portrayed in their natural environment. Sometimes, they look straight into the camera; other times, they are too preoccupied to notice that someone is watching them.
