Jacek Łechtański
Poland 2013 / 15’

In an empty wasteland, deserted as far as the eye can see, a naked man finds a suitcase with a suit, pocket watch and other gentlemanly implements. Once worn, each item brings him closer to the world of civilization. How long will he feel free in this mask? This story of the age-old conflict between nature and culture is a spare film about the search for an impossible way out.
