Fifth Rule

Alicja Stasiak
Zasada piąta
Poland 2013 / 19’

A sheepherder’s hut inhabited by several outsiders decorates a forgotten mountainside. Each of them must face their own problems as they escape from reality, undergo penance, or wait for a better tomorrow. Here, however, time stands still, the only changes being another cigarette and coffee – and waiting until the time comes to corral the sheep. This documentary about an unusual protagonist helps us believe that, like in the Beatle’s song, As we live a life of ease / Every one of us has all we need / Sky of blue and sea of green.
