MELODRAMA (2005, Poland, in Polish with English subtitles, 19 min., dir.: Filip Marczewski)
The film captures one moment in the life of a teenager who is exploring sexuality, whilst still stuck in the limbo between being a child and an adult.

THE THIRD ONE (2004, Poland, in Polish with English subtitles, 95 min., dir.: Jan Hryniak)
Pawel and Ewa are the typical young and ambitious couple: he is a workaholic, a pragmatist who is in constant search of success; she is a beautiful woman, intelligent and full of life, tired of her husband’s relentless dedication to his work. As the years go on, they find that their ability to communicate with each is not what it used to be. In an attempt to salvage their marriage, they plan the perfect get away trip on a yacht. During the trip, as they try to regain the love they once shared, they meet a man who is at odds in his own life. His wealth has made him cynical and yearning for more. He decides to help the young married couple but does so against their will using radical methods.
