ICHTHYS (animation, 2005, 16 min., dir.: Marek Skrobecki)

The short puppet animation of the internationally recognized director won many prestigious awards on numerous film festivals. It is a metaphoric film parable about the persistence of waiting, hope and fulfillment told in a unique and unconventional manner.

 

WESELE/ WEDDING (Poland, 2004, in Polish with English subtitles, 109 mins., dir.: Wojtek Smarzowski)

‘The Wedding’ is a chaotic black comedy about love, corruption and barrels of vodka. The happiest day of their lives turns into a nightmare for newlyweds Kaska and Janusz. Loving father-of-the bride Wieslaw Wojnar has one goal: to give his daughter the most memorable wedding in the village. Unfortunately, the Audi he gives his son-in-law as an inducement to marry the pregnant Kaska turns out to be stolen, her lover arrives uninvited, the band demands more money, and the police, the notary and the priest all have to be bribed before the night is over. The film won awards among others at the Karlovy Vary International Film Festival, and at Locarno International Film Festival. Supported by Polish Institute in Hungary, International Visegrad Fund
