Marysia’s World

Katarzyna Ewa Żak
Świat Marysi
Poland 2017 / 20’
III Norma

An intimate documentary about the hardships associated with entering adulthood. The eponymous Marysia is 20 years old, is never without her telephone and doesn't quite know what to do next with her life. Lost, unsure of her abilities, she comes up with a new idea every other day. In the background is her tense relationship with her mother: things heat up like in a cauldron, and their life together is one nonstop clash. A sensitive camera records everything.
