Autumn has begun, which means that Etiuda&Anima is drawing near. In order to make your waiting time more pleasant, we would like to present to you our new promotional spot, created exclusively for the 25th anniversary of the event. Its authors are Kaja Renkas and Iwona Pomianowska. The video, created on the basis of a poster by Kaja Renkas, draws inspiration from “Renaissance”, a 1964 animated film by Walerian Borowczyk.
