Przed minięciem
Poland 2013 / 15’

Sparks fly from anticipation in the winter air of a town surrounded by forest. Only a day remains until the ‘passing of the moon’, the cosmic event that seems to cause anxiety only in 10-year-old Maria. Meanwhile, the girl’s family focuses on trite reality while she attempts to comprehend the upcoming incident. Will she receive a calling from the winter forest? Will she find a companion in the local weirdo? Can the little heroine save a sliver of what will soon be gone forever?
